Greetings all!

Surprised to be the first one to ask, but is anybody familiar with any work related to simulating the setup for Sumobot competitions in Gazebo?

Considering that Gazebo relies on robust physics calculation engines, this seems to be a well-suited environment to building realistic simulation of sumobot fighting.

I'm currently interested whether Gazebo can provide a realistic simulation for collisions of two bots, and force-torque calculations for DC motors.

Thanks!
