[robotics-worldwide] [software] CoppeliaSim released

Marc Freese
We are happy to announce CoppeliaSim, the successor of our robot
simulator V-REP. CoppeliaSim is 100% compatible with V-REP, has more
features and runs faster than V-REP.

Students and Universities may freely use CoppeliaSim, no registration

The robot simulator CoppeliaSim, with integrated development
environment, is used for fast algorithm development, factory automation
simulations, fast prototyping and verification, robotics related
education, remote monitoring or as digital twin pendant. Newly added
features include:

- ROS2 interface
- XML scene/model format import/export
- PyRep, a Python toolkit for robot learning research
- OpenGL3 renderer, with shadows

Other features include:

- Open source and cross platform (Windows, Ubuntu, MacOS)
- ROS, BlueZero and remote API interfaces
- API/bindings in C/C++, Lua, Python, Java, Matlab, Octave
- Forward/inverse kinematics solver, for any type of mechanisms
- Collision, min. distance and proximity sensor module, operating on
meshes, point clouds and OC-trees
- 4 physics engines (Bullet, ODE, Newton and Vortex)
- Path/motion planning, via OMPL plugin
- Extensive support for custom user interfaces
- Advanced control and customization via embedded distributed scripting
- Complex applications can easily be built on top of CoppeliaSim, as
illustrated in following video: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__youtu.be_MX3VXvZFk0U&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=ayPz5Cp6zevjuCrlEge-wCF73vIkcs8yJPvbQcrbHd8&s=ZRm2oCjEg_lfh5QDmHY8fuHzWr4ZI7BDNDwlFg_lVB4&e= 
- Support for: RRS-1, Reflexxes motion library, haptic devices,
SDF/URDF, image processing, script commander (read-eval-print loop), etc.
