Hi everybody, I have a custom robot model in Gazebo and i want to create a battery plugin and then connect battery with motors. I have seen many different examples and i am a bit confused. I guess, i want the BatteryState topic publish in ROS. I am working with python. Any help? Do you have any examples on how to do it? Thank you!

I am also looking for such a plugin. I have seen two plugins in Gazebo9 those are If I understood the implementation of those correctly they have linear decharge based on a fixed load. I am looking for a plugin that dynamically decharge the battery based on the power of the motors. If you have implemented such a plugin, let me know

Hey @okan,

Have you found any such plugin or implemented by your own? I have a similar use-case and would love to use an existing plugin instead of writing from scratch.
