Hey, I have a question about reflective objects in Gazebo. I am working on localization of robot using reflective tape and I was wondering are there any reflective elements that I can use (or is there a way to create one)? It needs to give high intensity on scanner measurements (reflect a lot of scanner beam). It would be great to work on simulation instead of always using robot for testing.

I think you could use the <collision><laser_retro> property to specify a fixed intensity value to be returned by CPU-based ray sensors. I don't think there's an equivalent for GPU ray sensors (those which see visuals instead of collisions), but I could be wrong.

That looks promising, thanks!
