MORSE: the Modular Open Robots Simulator Engine
===============================================

[![DOI](https://zenodo.org/badge/doi/10.5281/zenodo.14087.svg)](http://dx.doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.14087) [![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/morse-simulator/morse.png?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/morse-simulator/morse)

[MORSE](http://morse-simulator.github.io/) (Modular OpenRobots Simulation Engine) is
an academic robotic simulator, based on the Blender Game Engine and the Bullet
Physics engine.  It is a BSD-licensed project (cf [LICENSE](LICENSE)).

It is meant to be versatile (simulation of field robotics, indoor
robotics, human robot interaction, multi-robots systems) and allow
simulation at different levels (from raw cameras to high-level
semantics).

The communication with the simulator is middleware independent. At the
moment, MORSE supports the [following
middlewares](http://www.openrobots.org/morse/doc/latest/user/integration.html):

- ROS
- Yarp
- pocolibs
- MOOS
- HLA
- mavlink
- and a generic socket interface (with an intuitive Python API)

Installation
------------

Please read INSTALL or check the [on-line installation
instructions](http://www.openrobots.org/morse/doc/latest/user/installation.html).

Documentation
-------------

The MORSE documentation is available from the doc/ directory.  It is
available as well online, on the [MORSE
website](http://www.openrobots.org/morse/doc).

You can also [subscribe to
morse-users@laas.fr](https://sympa.laas.fr/sympa/subscribe/morse-users).

How to contribute
-----------------

Even if the code-base is not stabilized yet, contribution to MORSE are
more than welcome.

You can contribute new robot models, new sensors, we have a TODO list
for the Blender game engine itself...

Feel free to [subscribe to
morse-dev@laas.fr](https://sympa.laas.fr/sympa/subscribe/morse-dev) and ask!

Code is available on [GitHub](https://github.com/morse-simulator/morse).

Feel free to fork, pull request or submit issues to improve the project!
