Dear ROS community,

We are happy to announce a ROS stack enabling a powerful ROS interface 
to the V-REP robot simulator <http://www.coppeliarobotics.com>. The 
stack is located here <http://www.coppeliarobotics.com/ros/>.

The stack allows building a plugin which offers more than 100 services, 
more than 30 publisher types and more than 25 subscriber types, thus 
enabling fast and elaborate data transfer or function calls to/from 
V-REP. The plugin can easily be extended with custom services / 
publisher types / subscriber types.

Documentation to the ROS plugin can be found here 

V-REP is the Swiss army knife among robot simulators: hundreds of 
features and functions, and a very elaborate API. Students may use V-REP 
with full functionality for free.

For more information, please visit http://www.coppeliarobotics.com, or 
have a look at following demo video:

Or visit us at IROS, at Hibot's booth.

Best regards,
