Miller, Bradley A.
This report, in completion of the Inquiry Seminar Project and prepared for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), examines simulators used within the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) in order to assess the usefulness of simulation tools amongst FRC teams. This is done through researching previous simulators used, and gaining survey data from FRC teams on a new simulator using Gazebo. Data gained through competition demonstrations and a beta of the FRC Gazebo plugin is used to assess the future of Gazebo and simulators in general amongst FIRST.
