You can use the gazebo_ros_p3d plugin to retrieve ground truth pose data. Depending on your needs you might want to increase gaussian noise, or write your own plugin based on gazebo_ros_p3d (if you need a more sophisticated error model than gaussian noise).

  <controller:gazebo_ros_p3d name="quadro_groundtruth_sim" plugin="">
    <interface:position name="my_box_p3d_position_iface" />

@Stefan Kohlbrecher : Is there any list for such gazebo plugins ? Any website/ link you may refer me to ?

hi,where is the difference between this plugin and gazebo_ros_imu plugin???And where do i get the magnetic field data in tesla unit??

@Arkapravo Have a look at . All that will probably change significantly with the new Fuerte ROS version though, as gazebo and it's plugin architecture will receive a major upgrade.

@mukmuk. Actually, for the purpose of simulating magnetic field sensors, both provide viable attitude data (the gazebo_ros_p3d plugin however outputs ground truth translation too). I'm not aware of a plugin providing data in tesla, you could generate something like that from attitude data though.
