Differential wheeled robot simulator

This Processing application is ment to simulate a differential wheeled robot, very used nowadays.




I missed the github class so here it is the good’old zip


There are still a couple of enhancements on the list:

  • real metrics and scale
  • connect to motor encoders
  • record a path on the virtual world and let the real robot follow it
  • become real simulator of the arduino code used in our robotics workshops´


The video is reproduced a lot faster than the program really performs  :p


Some control keys are available:




The overall program is quite simple to use, just pass the mouse over the joystick area to control the bot.
