• • • • • • • • • • Creating a complete virtual model of a robot or system by simulating components and control programs can significantly impact the general efficiency of a project. Depending on the level of detail and accuracy of the simulation environment there are various areas which can be analyzed, all of which affect the development life cycle to a certain extent and of course cost. Benefits of simulation • Reduce costs involved in robot production; • Diagnose source code that controls a particular resource or a mix of resources; • Simulate various alternatives without involving physical costs; • Robot or components can be tested before implementation; • Simulation can be done in stages, beneficial for complex projects; • Demonstration of a system to determine if is viable or not; • Compatibility with a wide range of programming languages; • Shorter delivery times. Disadvantages of simulation • An application can simulate just what it is programmed to simulate – it will not simulate internal or external factors which are overlooked in the development phase; • A robot can encounter many more scenarios in the real world than there can be simulated.
New versions of simulation software platforms offer increasingly more features that make simulation easier and also very close to real life. Tomtom Map Meta Keygen more. Most simulation tools are compatible with programming languages like C/C++, Perl, Python, Java, LabVIEW, URBI or MATLAB, however they offer broadly varied feature sets depending on their purpose or focus areas.
