A powerful 3D robot simulator, which features several versatile calculation modules (inverse kinematics, Physics/dynamics, collision detections, minimum distance calculations, path planning, etc.), a distributed control architecture (unlimited number of control scripts, threaded or non threaded), and several extension mechanisms (plug-ins, custom client application, etc.).
It offers a multitude of functionalities that can be easily integrated and combined through an exhaustive API and script functionality. V-REP comes in 5 different versions, with different licensing options for most versions.
V-REP is the perfect tool for fast prototyping and verification, remote monitoring, fast algorithm development, robotics related education, and simulation of factory automation systems. A V-REP plug-in was specifically developed to allow an intuitive, easy and realistic Khepera robot simulation.
A new powerful mechanism was developed to allow easy access to V-REP API functions from external applications (e.g. robots): the remote API. It can be bound with Python, Java, Matlab and Urbi.
Software is available for PC, Mac and Linux platforms.
This powerful simulation software will be freely provided with every Rahal Technology products for education. Khepera III, E-Puck and the K-Junior have their model already created in V-rep for your own simulations.
Source can be also available (subject to specific licensing term and condition, please contact Rahal Technology for more information).
We also provide a specific training on the V-rep software, you can contact us for more information.
