I'm porting a pioneerAT gazebo model on urdf model for ros. What I should do is loading that urdf model on gazebo (ros version) and after move the robot programmatically (I have to test my own path planner). What is the best way for do that, maybe use plugins?

Here is an introduction to using Gazebo with ROS commands.

Here are some tutorials for using urdf with ROS. You should definitely look at the tutorial for "Building a Movable Robot Model with URDF".

Finally, you could also look at the guardian stack to see how to properly manipulate a four-wheel skid steer robot like the pioneer2AT.

I am trying to use p3atGazeboRos plugin from . It is same plugin made available by Balakumar. I am using ROS Hydro, Gazebo 1.90 on Ubuntu12.04 (with precompiled binaries).

On launching pioneer3at.gazebo.launch, gazebo dies with error code 139. The following errors are reported in logs. I am typing these below: 1. rosmaster.master [ERROR] File .../python2.7/dist-packages/rosmaster/ valid_fcode() .. line 116 -> 406 -> 161 value error. Namespace must be global.

  1. rosmaster.threadpool ERROR rosmaster/ line number 218 run python2.7/ line number 571 error 111 connections refused.

I do not know what are cause of these. thanks nitin

You can also try Gazebo model from p2os repository. Works well for me. It uses skid steer drive plugin from gazebo_ros_pkgs.
