DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Simulator

Gazebo is the basis for the DRC Simulator, which is used by participants in the DRC program, especially the Virtual Robotics Challenge (VRC), a cloud-based simulation competition scheduled for June 2013. Building upon Gazebo, the DRC Simulator, or DRCSim, comprises additional worlds, models, and code that is specifically required to simulate the DRC domain.



The DRC Simulator is contained within the `drcsim` package. Follow the installation instructions to install it.
