In this tutorial on Random Numbers, It says that Gazebo makes use of a random number generator. By default its seed is set to PID But we can manually set the seed too for example Gazebo can be initialized with a random number seed on the command line using the --seed argument: gazebo --seed  I tried the command gazebo --seed 9 Well, it opened gazebo , but I do not know what was changed or what was different. I can't understand the tutorial. What is the random number for?? What does gazebo use it for? What if I change it? I'm quite new in Gazebo, please help to explain. 2017-08-23 21:17:48 -0600 received badge ● Scholar (source) 2017-08-23 21:17:37 -0600 received badge ● Famous Question (source) 2017-08-23 10:05:08 -0600 commented answer What does Gazebo use Random number generator for? @iche033 Thank you for your answer.
