A simulation library for Agility Robotics' Cassie robot using MuJoCo.
Developed and tested on Ubuntu 16.04. Also compiles for Windows using mingw-w64.
To build the shared library:
- Install libglfw3-dev
- Clone this repository
- Download mjpro150_linux.zip from roboti.us
- Put mjpro150 in the cassie-mujoco-sim directory
To cross-compile for Windows, use
A directory named release will be created containing the files needed to use the library with a C interface. A Python interface can be generated with
make ctypes, which requires ctypeslib2 to be installed.
A license file for MuJoCo (mjkey.txt) is required to run the simulation. The library also includes functions that can be used for communicating with Cassie over UDP, and MuJoCo is not required if only these functions are called.
To build and run the examples:
- Place mjkey.txt in the cassie-mujoco-sim directory
- Run the examples in the test directory
The examples include cassiesim, which simulates a physical Cassie robot controlled over UDP, and cassiectrl, a null controller operating over UDP. The file cassietest.c is a minimal example of running the simulation, and cassietest.py demonstrates controlling the simulated robot in Python.
Documentation for the simulation functions is included in include/cassiemujoco.h. The file header/udp.h declares convenience functions for creating a UDP socket and obtaining the most recent packet. The remaining header files include functions for packing and unpacking structures used to communicate with Cassie into UDP packets and for simulating Cassie's internal safety mechanisms and state estimation processes.
