I found this tutorial on setting up a Husky A200 simulation environment with Gazebo:

Unfortunately, we are not using the same versions of Ubuntu or ROS. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and Fuerte, and he is using 11.04 and Electric.

I am getting the following errors when I try to execute rosmake on the huskyA200_gazebo and huskyA200_teleop stacks, respectively:

- huskyA200_gazebo:

  In file included from /home/developer/fuerte_workspace/wavelab-multi-robot-mapping-stack-read-only/huskyA200_gazebo/src/huskyA200_base_controller.cpp:32:0:
  /home/developer/fuerte_workspace/wavelab-multi-robot-mapping-stack-read-only/huskyA200_gazebo/include/huskyA200_base_controller/huskyA200_base_controller.h:31:27: fatal error: gazebo/Param.hh: No such file or directory
  compilation terminated.

- huskyA200_teleop:

  Linking CXX executable ../bin/huskyA200_teleop_keyboard
    /usr/bin/ld: CMakeFiles/huskyA200_teleop_keyboard.dir/src/huskyA200_teleop_keyboard.o: undefined reference to symbol 'vtable for boost::detail::thread_data_base'
    /usr/bin/ld: note: 'vtable for boost::detail::thread_data_base' is defined in DSO /usr/lib/ so try adding it to the linker command line
    /usr/lib/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

There is much more to the output of the rosmake commands, which I can post if needed, but I did not post the full outputs for readability's sake.

Does anyone know:

  1. of any other stacks available to simulate Husky A200 with gazebo, or
  2. how to alleviate the errors that I am encountering with these particular stacks?

Thank you.

If you're going to get it from source, I would use our official code (which Sid's work was merged into):

It doesn't support Gazebo 1.0 quite yet; I'm actually working through the conversions right now.

EDIT: Gazebo 1.0 looks good and has been released to Github in the "husky_description" package. Pre-Fuerte launchfiles, xacros, etc are labeled "_prefuerte". Pull requests welcome! :)

OK, it supports v1.0 now. Starting our test & release process...

@Ryan nice, thanks. Any feedback on conversion process is appreciated.
