Three simulators are available with e-puck modules:
- ENKI , an open-source, fast 2D physics-based robot simulator written in C++. It is able to simulate cinematics, collisions, sensors and cameras of robots evolving on a flat surface. It also provides limited support for friction. It is able to simulate groups of robots hundred times faster than realtime on a modern desktop computer.
- WEBOTS , a efficient 3D physics-based robot simulator that provides you with a rapid prototyping environment for modelling, programming and simulating mobile robots. The included robot libraries allow you to transfer your control programs to many commercially available real mobile robots, including the e-puck robot. Webots comes with:
- V-REP, a distributed control 3D robot simulator, that allows to create whole robotic systems, simulate, and interact with dedicated hardware. It possesses several calculation modules, e.g. sensor simulation (proximity/camera), inverse/forward kinematics, two physics engines (Bullet/ODE), path planning, minimum distance calculation, graphing, etc. A fully operational version for students can be downloaded.
