Hello, I am trying to make text recognition using an asus camera. I manage to have some results by using Tesseract and extract script and created a script combining them. Now i am trying to simulate it with a turtlebot in gazebo but i dont know how to add a model that has something written on it like a sign that writes stop.. Is there a way to add my own model with text on it or just 2D images?

Hello, sure, you can add your own models, also with texture. Here for example I added this table from rail_collada_models:

You need to add it to ~/.gazebo/models with a model.config file describing it. For example for the table above you must add a directory named doll_table containing the meshes and textures and a model.config file like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <name>Doll table</name>
  <sdf version='1.3'>doll_table.sdf</sdf>


    A small wooden table.

to ~/.gazebo/models. Just check other models there as examples (will be empty until you include some of the models available by default in gazebo; they get downloaded locally the first time you use them).

Hope this helps!
