ROS Live Class: How to create Cozmo robot Gazebo simulation

ROS Developers Live Class: ** How to create Cozmo robot Gazebo simulation**

  • Date&Time: Feb 5th, 2019 | 6pm to 7pm · CET
  • Fee: Free event
  • Registration website:


Cozmo robot from Anki is a very interesting robot with some support in ROS. However, there is no Gazebo simulation of the robot. In this Live Class you will learn to build its simulation.


· How to define a robot model in Gazebo.
· How to add different components of the model.
· How to add sensor plugins to simulate sensors.
· What is the difference between the collision model and the visual model in a Gazebo simulation
· How to add ROS control to the simulation

Robots used in this class:

▸ For this class we are going to use the Cozmo robot: by Anki. You can find more information about Cozmo robot here:



Ricardo has 7 years experience building software for ROS based robots including human size humanoids. He is the author of 4 books about learning ROS. He teaches Robotics at the University of LaSalle for the undergraduate program and for the Master. Additionally, he delivers every Tuesday a free ROS Live Class on his Youtube channel, where attendants can learn and practice a ROS subject. He is also the conductor of the ROS Developers Podcast where he interviews every week a ROS expert about how to better program robots with ROS.

*The whole code will be provided for free to all the attendants to the class as a ROSject, containing simulation, notebook with instructions and code.

*This is a LIVE Class on how to develop with ROS. In Live Classes, you will practice with the instructor at the same time, with the provided free ROS material.
