Turtlebot3 Gazebo Simulation

Turtlebot3 Gazebo Simulation

In the previous lesson, we became familiar with ROS Parameter Server, what it was, and how you could manipulate it via the terminal and in written code, as well as creating, recording, playing, and reading ROS Bags. ROS Parameter Server In this lesson in the series of lessons on ROS tutorials, we will download the turtlebot3 simulation package, launch Gazebo and try to understand its different features and files, and play with an actual robotics turtle.
