OpenStreetMap support in Gazebo

October 22, 2014

KhuranaDuring her internship as part of the Gnome Outreach Program for Women, Tashwin Khurana developed a tool for downloading data from the OpenStreetMap database to produce a corresponding world file for Gazebo. Tashwin focused on importing roads, traffic signals, and buildings, and provided support for a new shape type: the extruded polyline. The two-dimensional shape is defined with a series of points that can be extruded to form a solid object, which can be very useful for visualizing buildings and similar constructions.

Khurana is a M.S. student in Computer Science from Lehigh University.
