Enki

Enki is an open source robot simulator written in C++. It provides collision and limited physics support for robots evolving on a flat surface. On a contemporary desktop computer, Enki is able to simulate groups of robots hundred times faster than real-time.

Supported robots

This section presents the robots available in the standard distribution, alongside their supported features. Enki is extensible: users can add their own custom robots.

Khepera

  • IR sensors
  • Linear camera
  • Wheel encoders

S-bot

  • Omnidirectional camera
  • Light ring
  • Simplified sound communication

Alice

  • IR sensors
  • IR communication
  • Linear camera

E-puck

  • IR sensors
  • Bluetooth communication
  • Linear camera
  • Scanner turret
  • Light ring
  • Wheel encoders

Thymio 2

  • IR proximity and ground sensors
  • 27 LEDs and realistically-textured hull
  • BackEMF speed meters

Source distribution

This section explains how to compile Enki from the source distribution.

Prerequisites

To compile Enki and programs who depend on it, you need:

  • a working and fairly recent c++ compiler
  • CMake
  • A build environment compatible with CMake.

In addition, if you want the support for the viewer and Python bindings, you need:

Compilation under Unix

Those short instructions assume that you want to use "make" to build Enki. If you want to use another build environment, such as Microsoft Visual Studio, please refer to cmake documentation. Once you have downloaded and extracted the source distribution, you can create the Makefiles by running:

cmake .

and then build Enki by running:

make

You can also change the build options by running:

ccmake .

or

cmake-gui .

prior to cmake.

Use

To use the library with a project using CMake, add these lines in your project:

find_package(enki REQUIRED)

Then you can include the Enki directory with:

include_directories(${enki_INCLUDE_DIR})

And link to the library, and optionally its viewer, by:

target_link_libraries(YOUR_TARGET ${enki_VIEWER_LIBRARIES} ${enki_LIBRARY} ...)

Inside your code, include Enki and the viewer using:

#include <enki/PhysicalEngine.h>
#include <viewer/Viewer.h>

Documentation

HTML documentation (including examples and cookbooks) can be generated by the doc target of the build system. Doxygen tool can be downloaded from http://www.doxygen.org/

Contribute

If you want to contribute to Enki, please open an issue to discuss your idea or submit a pull request with a prototype.
