Construct a robot model with URDF II

In a previous tutorial, we saw how to develop a robot model using the Unified Robot Description Format or URDF for short. We did so by developing a model for Odisseus a differential drive robot. In this post we will see how to add mesh files in our robot description. Meshes allow us to have … Continue reading Construct a robot model with URDF II
