Update: I have already asked this question on the Gazebo forum (here ) but have not received a reply. Hence This question is being asked in the expectation that someone using ROS + gazebo may have done something similar and can help out.

I am currently working on a drone related project and using gazebo for simulation

In order to measure accuracy of my localisation, I need to know the ground truth values. Is there some way in Gazebo to continuously track/store the actual/true/ground truth 6D pose, ie the rotation and translation w.r.t. to a fixed frame like the world frame.

I wish to create something like the following -

If you're asking about a Gazebo-only solution, you should post this question over at If you're actually asking about how to receive such data in ROS, then this becomes a Gazebo plugins question, which we could keep open on this site.

Well I did ask on gazebo forum, but have not yet received a reply. Hence I considered asking here since people may have done projects using ROS + gazebo for such a thing.

If/when you're cross-posting, always include a link to the other post. That way we can avoid split discussions.

Your post at Gazebo Answers is 12 hours old. Both of these communities are run by volunteers, and it is Sunday: people probably have something better to do.

Summarising: please wait a little longer before cross-posting to other fora.
