Hi, I'm new to gazebo and ROS, I apolagize if my question may not make sens, I'm currently looking for a way to simulate suction or vacuum like effect , (not to pick object) it's more of a vaccuming arm (industrial vacuum cleaner with articulated arm for dust/unwanted materiel collection). It's more of something like this: image description

or like this:

Is there a way to control air/wind localy (pressure , wind direction...) on a robot model in gazebo? I would really appreciate if you have any insight on the subject.

Thanks in advance.
