Simbody Issues in GAZEBO2.0.0

asked 2013-10-08 13:18:11 -0600

Hi, I have just downloaded the new version of GAZEBO (2.0.0) and I am trying to use simbody dynamic engine with my humanoid robot but I have the following error/debug messages several times:

Dbg Simbody::GetAngleImpl() simbody not yet initialized, initial angle should be zero until <initial_angle> is implemented.

Error [SimbodyPhysics.cc:1154] Collision type [4202496] unimplemented Dbg Setting limitForce for [LHipSag]

Dbg Not implement in Simbody Dbg SetAxis Not implemented...

In terms of simulation I see the robot penetrating the ground and falling. Is this something that I have to change in my model? Actually I have tried to spawn the pr2 but gazebo crashes while with the youbot the robot looks like floating and the link collides one each other. I suppose this is normal due to the w.i.p. release, just to know. Thx in advance.

Simbody is not yet fully supported in gazebo. I looked at the error message for SimbodyPhysics.cc:1154, and apparently meshes are not yet supported as collision shapes. I've created gazebo issue #883 to track this. There's a list of other open issues for simbody.

As a workaround, can you use a combination of boxes, spheres, and cylinders to model the contact surfaces of your humanoid? You can probably start with the feet and hands.

I see. This means that I can maintain the meshes for the visualization but I need simple primitive shapes for collision (I can not use the convex hulls that I have generated for my humanoids). Thank you for your answer!

Actually I also have another problem related with shared library: looks like GAZEBO can not find some libraries that I have to pass to it through LDLIBRARYPATH. I have built and installed gazebo-2.0.0.

Can you either elaborate on the other problem or post it as a separate question?
