Need for a customizable Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) to work in ROS and Gazebo.

Hello everyone, Please help...

I am working on a project where I need UGV designed in ROS and can be simulated in Gazebo and (Preferably contain some sensors such as camera, ultrasonic and Lidar or such sensors can be added to it), and to have an interface with a joystick. also I need to change the shape of this vehicle to a custom made one that I build using .dae file.

I was looking for such vehicle and I found ( Husky , Grizzly , and Jackal) but all are not customizable as I could not neither change there physical appearance nor to add some sensors to them.

1- Husky ( ) 2- Grizzly ( ) 3- Jackal ( )

Please if you know such vehicle that I can install and use or if you have a useful suggestions then let me know. I could not build my own because I am still a beginner in this field and I need a moving vehicle (with dynamic model) which is difficult for me to build.

Many thanks in advance, Cheers

You can always start with the models for those vehicles and then modify them for your simulation including editing the meshes to make your own custom version. And you can definitely add sensors to them or any other model in simulation.

I know I'm digging up an old topic, but just in case for the others:

Try our Leo Rover :) - it's much more fun when you can modify anything you like!

I would think that the best thing to do would be to create your own based off of others. You could some of the same launch files and config files but change the robot description files to suit your needs. One that I have looked at while trying to learn ROS and Gazebo simulation is this code and book combination.

@chrissunny94 maybe add some context or description on why the OP should try that repository?
