Can gazebo_ros actually use bullet?

asked 2011-04-21 10:39:51 -0500

I've seen references to bullet and its use with gazebo, but haven't seen any specific information on whether its work in progress or its actually possible now.

Anyone know if its possible and how to do it, or where to find instructions for doing so?

According to the Gazebo roadmap, full Bullet support is a long-term goal.

Gazebo requires bullet version 2.81 or higher. OSRF has libbullet debs hosted at for precise and quantal, but not raring. So the gazebo debs don't have bullet support, but if you build from source then you can use bullet with gazebo -e bullet. We're still fixing bugs and adding unit tests for physics, but there is partial support for bullet.
