Physical engine for non-planar autonomous vehicle

Hello all.

I am interesting in simulating an autonomous vehicle. It supposed to travel in non-planar environment and use GPS, INS and LIDAR sensors for navigation and obstacle avoidance.

I am deliberating about which physical engine is the more suitable for my objectives ODE , BULLET, SIMBODY or DART.

I will be happy, if anyone can share some experience or throw some light about what are the advantages and disadvantages of these engines in general and specifically in relation to my intentions.

Thanks.

(regarding shu question) My simulation performance target is achieving difference of less than 20% between the simulation and the reality. For example, given certain vehicle power, terrain slope and friction coefficients. I interesting that the achieved velocity in the simulation will be in the 20% proximity of the real world experiment results. same rational also goes regarding steering commands and sensors data.

(regarding hsu question) My simulation fidelity target is achieving difference of less than 20% 10% between the simulation and the reality. For example, given certain vehicle power, terrain slope and friction coefficients. I interesting that the achieved velocity in the simulation will be in the 20% 10% proximity of the real world experiment results. same rational also goes regarding steering commands and sensors data.
