Hi, I am doing swarm robots simulation on ros gazebo(ros indigo, Gazebo7, ubuntu 14.04). I want to use 802.11 wifi card in robot. is it available in gazebo or in ROS? I found WirelessTranmitter and WirelessReceiver files in bitbucket but I think it will not be useful. as every robot should transmit and receive signals.

Is there any other idea that i can make communnication between robots and get the RSSI(received signal strength indicator) value and calculate the distance between the robots and then i want to disperse the robots.

had you consider running multiple VM with ros and gazebo ,each one with a robot that communicates trough the network.You can use Matlab or other software to fake the wifi in the communication protocol
