mobile robot on v-rep

mobile robot on v-rep


Hi all,

For people who are expert at robotic software v-rep,

How can i implement Djikstra Algorithm and PID to my mobile robot in a maze environment in a v-rep simulation?

I'm very new using this software

And if there is a code, how do i make the code?

Depth answer of you all would be very helpful and appreciated.

Thank you in advance

What an excellent program. Yes, once you have completed bubbleRob tutorial you have all the tools you need for a PID controller for the motors, which is a waste of time, and Djikstra, which may run very slowly as the command language is interpreted.

RE: mobile robot on v-rep

Actually further investigation shows that PID control is possible and the model could be made realistic enough for it to be meaningful. A simple model like the one in the tutorial is not really going to benefit from it, in my opinion. That is, I'd want to make the suspension and tires more realistic before bothering with PID control of the motors.
