Dear Developers of Stage,
I am student from Germany and working on my
Masterthesis. I have choosen to develope a simulation-tool for testing
localization algorithms. This tool should be used in our Robocup-Team and other
more general projects. When I found Stage and tested it, I decided to use
it for my work. So my task is to modify Stage to
make the sensors more realistic. I want to implement typical errors
in the main sensor classes and validate this errors by comparison
with real hardware. I am using Stage version 3.0.1. Already there
exists a simple lasernoise plugin. So my questions are:
Are there any of the developers dooing the same
work at the moment?
Perhaps you are interessted in my work afterwards,
so can you give me some hints in which way I should implement my
modifications, e.g. trying to realize most of them as plugins, or it
would be nice to hear something about your plans in implementing realistic
failure-models for the sensors.
I would be thankful about some feedback.
