Robot Simulator Software

Hai,
I was wondering if there exists an integrated robot simulator..........i mean a simulator where i can somehow input the geometry of the links or
the design of a mobile robot.......specifications of the motor...........specifications of the various sensors.........so that, once a control algorithm has been given it simulates the performance of the robot...........i know its possible to simuate dynamics, controls, path
planning etc independently...........but i am looking for a software which allows me to simulate the entire robot along with the environment..............
thanks, RoboGuru

yes there is, its made of two packages
Player and Stage
if you want to know more you should ask wildmage, he used it at the university
you will need to get on irc to ask him you need an irc program (like xchat or mirc) and join the irc.linux.org server and go to the #robotics channel, I dont know what time of day he is available.

Also, Pyro (http://pyrorobotics.org /) provides a nice Python wrapper around Player/Stage/Gazebo, for those who aren't hardcore C/C++ hackers.

The new microsoft robotics package contains a physics engine for simulation that is exactly what you are describing. I've seen the videos of people using it, but haven't yet tested myself, so it could all be bogus, but I'd look at it at least.

There are several. Player/Stage is the most widely used. Yobotics has one. Some of us are working on one that runs inside of Blender.

Yeah i would like to find something like this would save me a ton of money on trial and error style robotics
