ARS: Autonomous Robot Simulator

https://pypip.in/d/ARS/badge.png

ARS is a physically-accurate robotics simulator written in Python. It's main purpose is to help researchers to develop mobile manipulators and, in general, any multi-body system. It is open-source, modular, easy to learn and use, and can be a valuable tool in the process of robot design, in the development of control and reasoning algorithms, as well as in teaching and educational activities.

ARS uses Open Dynamics Engine (ODE) as physics engine, and Visualization Toolkit (VTK) as graphics engine. While both are well regarded and popular open-source software, ARS was designed to minimize coupling with them (through included abstraction layers) to let developers experiment with other alternatives.

Installation

Because ARS is pip-compatible, it's very easy to install, upgrade and uninstall it:

While that's the recommended way to go, you may still follow the old-fashion procedure: download the file, unpack and run

Requirements

ARS needs:

  • Python 2.6 or 2.7
  • ODE (Open Dynamics Engine) 0.12 with Python bindings
  • VTK (Visualization Toolkit) 5.8 with Python bindings
  • NumPy 1.6

ODE and VTK can be somewhat complicated to install, depending on your OS.

For detailed installation instructions (ARS and requirements) and troubleshooting, see the online documentation.
