2D Visualisation for testing path planning algorithms

Hi everyone, I am working on the AR.Drone and would like to implement simulation on path planning algorithms. I would like to write an algorithm such as A* in a .cpp file and have a simple GUI that visualises the robots movement. I want to simulate random objects also to test the algorithm that I decide to implement. Does anyone know of a way that I can visualise the process described above?

Thanks in advance!

I would definitely check out some Gazebo or PCL applications in addition to ROS.

Hi Athosen, thank you for your reply. Just to check, does the gazebo have the ability to simulate random objects and give them a random x,y position in a map? Also, do you know any 2D environments? Ideally I want to work in a 2D environment, simulate random objects and move the robot (square block)

Were you able to find such a tool @JP ?
