Surface vehicle simulation

(Thorsten von Eicken) #1

I’m interested in simulating fast USVs that plane or foil in high waves (I want to develop control algorithms that have a chance of working before building and smashing real things into waves). Does anyone have any pointers to physics-based simulations that work that I could start with? Preferably using gazebo. I’ve spent hours searching and come up basically empty-handed. It looks like surface vehicle simulation is just not something people do…
