The Case for a Realistic Mobile Robot Simulator

Mark C. Torrance

Simulators used in research on autonomous mobile robots have been criticized for their tendency to change the nature of the problems the robot control architecture has to solve. In this paper we address those arguments, and find that under certain conditions simulators can be a valuable tool to supplement research with physical robots. We conclude with guidelines for the successful design and use of simulators in research on mobile robots.
