2016-02-17 02:03:00 -0600 asked a question Realistic implementation of ultrasound sensor in gazebo_range plugging?

Hello,

I am trying to simulate ultrasound sensor in gazebo. I have found in the gazebo_pkg the gazebo_range plugging. This plugging supplies the radiation_type field where you can choose ultrasound emission type if you want to simulate this sensor behaviour. But I wonder whether the behaviour in the simulation is realistic or not . It is well-known that when the ultrasound sensor cone hits against a surface and this one is not perpendicular some problems appear to get the reflected wave. Usually ultrasound hitting against a plate with 45º-degrees angle doesn't see the surface. So and in summary my question are:

Has the plugging implemented this behaviour?

If the answer is not. How difficult would it be to implement it?

Thanks a lot.

Hello,

I am trying to simulate ultrasound sensor in gazebo. I have found in the gazebo_pkg the gazebo_range plugging. This pluging supplies the radiation type field to be able to set ultrasound as a emission type. But I wonder whether the behaviour in the simulation is realistic or not . It is well-knowne that when the ultrasound sensor cone hits against a surface and this one is not perpendicular some problems to get the reflected energy appears. Usually ultrasounds that hit against a plate set up with 45º degrees don't see the surface. So and in summary my question are:

Has the pluging implemented this behaviour?

If the answer is not. How difficult would it be to implement it?

Thans a lot.
