Hi,

I have a question related to the physics engines used by Gazebo.

As we know, with Gazebo we can choose 4 different types of Physics Engines.

My question is: How and why these physics engines were selected? Why not Physx, for example?

One thing that the currently supported engines have in common is being open source. Physx isn't.
