Hi ROS community!
The simulation team at Open Robotics started hosting monthly
meetings with the community in order to give visibility into our development process and roadmap, strengthen collaboration with community members outside of Open Robotics, as well as offer a space for anyone to provide feedback.
Next month’s topic will be the integration between Gazebo’s next generation, Ignition Gazebo, and ROS (1 and 2), so we’re cross-posting the
Place: Google Meet
Event: Calendar event
Topic: Ignition integration with ROS 1 and 2
Agenda: Everyone is welcome to add items to the agenda.
As always, the meeting will be recorded and posted on the
community meetings playlist on the GazeboSim YouTube channel.
Be sure to subscribe to the
Ignition community calendar to receive invitations the meeting every month.
Here are some recent posts about Ignition that ROS users may be interested in reading beforehand:
The simulation team at Open Robotics is happy to announce the release of Ignition integrations for ROS Noetic and Foxy! ROS users have easy access to Ignition Citadel, which is Ignition’s first 5-year LTS, to be supported until 2025.
Gazebo’s next generation
Ignition is the next generation of the Gazebo simulator, with an updated architecture and new features that are aimed at improving your simulation experience. Some of Ignition’s new features are:
Plugin-based physics and renderi…

The simulation team at Open Robotics is happy to announce another major release of Ignition, code named Dome! This is the fourth major release of Ignition, following Citadel, Blueprint and Acropolis.
Dome is a short-term release supported until December 2021.
Here are a few highlights since Citadel’s release 9 months ago:
GUI : Lots of new GUI features and widgets
Customizable layout : Customize the graphical interface to your own needs an…
First, excellent work from the Ignition Dev Team, and congrats on the new release of Citadel!
Reading through the feature comparison between this and Gazebo-classic version 11 and the status of their migration to Ignition Citadel, I noticed the new approach for ROS integration:
ROS integration with Ignition will be done primarily via a transport bridge instead of plugins, contained in the ros_ign package.
See you at the community meeting!
