I'm simulating cleaning robots(such as roombas), and I need to visualize the process the robots cleaning the whole surface.

It would be ideal if I can change the floor colour(from grey to white) once the robots have walked over it, so that there's be a trail of the robot path. Does anyone know how to implement it?

you basically need to see if it is possible to do this in OGRE, maybe you can draw some thick transparent lines on the floor.

To access OGRE you need to use a visual or a gui plugin. Here is an example of a gui plugin.

Cheers, Andrei
