In the cfg file, you can set the usegui option of the stageplugin. For example ....
driver
(       
  name "stage"
  plugin "stageplugin"
  usegui 0

  # load the named file into the simulator
  worldfile "simple.world"
)
see: http://rtv.github.com/Stage/group__player.html
I've found that increases the simulation speed a LOT since it doesn't generate the GUI anymore.
Also in the world file you can set the speedup parameter.

Hello all,

I am trying to develop some strategies and in order to assess them I
need to simply get a log of useful data generated as the mobile robot
tries to reach a target. I have NO NEED to watch the simulation in
real time. I will decide which strategies are good based on some
calculation on the logged data.

How can I AVOID THE LONG SIMULATION TIME?

Since I am new to this field I may be asking the wrong question. Some
might suggest that this is a real-time simulator and I am using the
wrong tool. These are valid objections but for the time being I have
NO NEED FOR REAL TIME SIMULATION. So if there are other tools that can
be useful please do let me know.

Let's say that I want to record the sonar data for a period of 150
seconds while the robot moves, how can I collect this sonar data
WITHOUT having to wait for 150 seconds.

Thank you all in advance,

Best,
Karan
