hello all,

I am developing a project in which I need to have a simulator of the robot for the user, so I would like to integrate the simulator display of Rviz in my interface,

is there anyway in ROS in which I can input the commands by commandline for example or which I an manipulate their code to get it inside my gui ?

Thank you

Rviz is a visualizer, if you are looking for a simulator in row, then you should look into gazebo, see the wiki here http://www.ros.org/wiki/simulator_gazebo. OpenRAVE also provides a good simulator and is well documented here with row support available as well.

It would help if you clarify your needs further.

So what I am tying to so basically is that I am developing an interface for my robot "Nao" and I want to add a simulator to my interface to simulate his movement to the user like the things provided in Rviz, the only problem in Rviz is that I couldn't find a way to integrate it into my code

I am going to check the things you posted and get back at you ...thank you :D

What do you mean with "simulate"? Do you want to visualize what the real robot does right now? Or do you want to simulate a robot without any robot involved? I think instead of simulate you might mean visualize.

BTW: Is your robot a Nao or just named "Nao". If it is one, are you aware of this: http://www.ros.org/wiki/nao
