I just want to try robosim that detects if there is a person in front of him. I'm currently using a proximity detector where if a person is near, my robosim will detect it and stop. Although this works just fine, an obstacle can also be detected as person. I want to try to differentiate a person to an object by adding a heat sensor in my robosim model. Is there a way in gazebo to add heat in person model so that it can be detected by my robosim's heat sensor?
