Is there anyone who has simulated the tracked vehicles like tanks?

In terms of controlling the vehicles, the caterpillar might not be a serious problem.

However, if I want to focus on its traction control, then it matters.

Currently, what I can think of is making a lot of skinny rectangular pieces along with a lot of hinge joints.

Before trying to do that, I just would like to know if someone did similar things or this is a reasonable idea or there exists another better idea. Thank you.

This a fairly old issue, but to point people finding it via Google or other means into the right direction: Here is Gazebo Bitbucket ticket 863 discussing track drive simulation.

There has been a discussion about this two years ago here, but I don't know what became of it.
