Python bindings for the Gazebo multi-robot simulator.

Project description

pygazebo provides python bindings for the Gazebo ( multi-robot simulator.


  • Supports publishing and subscribing to any Gazebo topics using a straightforward python API.

  • Python versions of all defined Gazebo protobuf messages are included.

  • Based on asyncio/trollius for flexible concurrency support.

Simple Usage

The following example shows how easy it is to publish a message repeatedly to control a single joint in a Gazebo model running on the local machine on the default port.

import trollius
from trollius import From

import pygazebo
import pygazebo.msg.joint_cmd_pb2

def publish_loop():
    manager = yield From(pygazebo.connect())

    publisher = yield From(

    message = pygazebo.msg.joint_cmd_pb2.JointCmd()
    message.axis = 0
    message.force = 1.0

    while True:
        yield From(publisher.publish(message))
        yield From(trollius.sleep(1.0))

loop = trollius.get_event_loop()


3.0.0-2014.1 (2014-07-04)

  • Switch from eventlet to trollius/asyncio, for better compatibility with other event loops and future python versions.

  • Update to gazebo 3.0.0
