ZeroSim is a robotics simulation engine built on the easy to use Unity 3D development platform and the power of the Robotics Operating System (ROS).
ZeroSim is designed for ease of use and rapid development of all sorts of robotics and simulation -- from warehouses and industrial settings, to farming and outdoors -- from robotic arms to ground and drone based mobile robots.
ZeroSim provides a multitude of tools for building robots and environments in Unity to interface with ROS.
Dynamics simulation using the latest PhysX 4.x integrated in Unity. Hinge, ball, linear and fixed joints.
Advanced 3D Rendering
Advanced 3D Rendering, including the latest realtime ray tracing technology.

The best things are free and so is ZeroSIM
ZeroSim is a project developed over several years by FS Studios for the rapid development of all sorts of robotic simulation projects for various clients, from robotic arms to mobile robots.
We are releasing ZeroSim as open source to support the community of roboticist and software engineers that have supported us over the decades. We are in active development and welcome all feature requests, bug reports, and pull requests.
