I’m using Gazebo 1.9 and I’d like to model an Ackermann steering. I’ve started with the URDF model and I’m having problems with the parallel kinematics because URDF doesn’t support it. Is there any way to do this using URDF and Gazebo 1.9? And is there any plugin to use with an Ackermann steering?

Thanks in advanced!

There is a ROS user group focussed on Ackermann steering based robots.

Recently, Jim Rothrock sent a mail to ros-users list with news about a new repository called ackermann_vehicle which contains the package ackermann_vehicle_gazebo. Maybe you can look around to see if something can inspire you.
