Hello, I have XML and CPP files describing a robot I would like to build, but I would like to simulate it before I build it. I need to create an HTML file that will start the simulation of my robot running ROS. I have tried a few simulators, but it doesn't seem like any of the simulators I have tried can do this. Any suggestions? Thanks
