2012-12-07 00:53:34 -0500 commented question Is there a way to modify the default camera position in the world file?

This is very annoying in the new gazebo. Can someone post their code to move the camera? I tried the <camera> <pose> setting, but i cannot get it to work. I am most likely doing something wrong

2012-12-04 21:16:33 -0500 asked a question Is there a way to modify the default camera position in the world file?

I would like to move the camera position to something other than what it defaults to. How would I go about this in the world file? There is some documentation but it is vague.

Here is the code I am using changing the camera pose does nothing. I needed to put a name in for the camera, because it would not parse otherwise:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<sdf version="1.3">
    <world name="default">
   <gui>
      <camera name="user_default">
            <pose>-1 0 -2 0 -5 0</pose>
      </camera>
    </gui>    
<scene>
<shadows>false</shadows>
</scene>

2012-11-20 22:43:02 -0500 asked a question Is there a way to visualize variables in real time?

I am looking for a way to plot or graph variables so I can visually see how the robot is interpreting data such as range finders.

2012-11-14 00:23:57 -0500 asked a question Simulating Springs

I am looking to simulate a spring on a rotational joint in Gazebo. My goal would be to have an arm maintain a position when no external force is applied, but give when a force is applied. I see the "dampening" feature under the joint, axis properties, but I cannot find a spring feature. Is there a way to do this?
