ROS Toolbox compatibility with Gazebo
5 views (last 30 days)
With R2021b, the packaged Ubuntu 18.04 VM from MathWorks provides a ROS2 Dashing / Gazebo 9, but what we have installed is Ubuntu 20.04, ROS2 Foxy / Gazebo 11. Is the R2021b ROS Toolbox compatible with this newer combination or will we run into issues ? Thank You

There have been issues communicating between ROS 2 Dashing and Foxy for some users. Here is a page addressing that, and another with additional workarounds. I'm not personally knowledable about Gazebo 9 to Gazebo 11 compatibility.
However, the pre-release of R2022a is available, if you have a license that supports the use of pre-releases. R2022a ROS Toolbox makes use of ROS 2 Foxy for communication and Robotics System Toolbox's Gazebo Co-Simulation is compatible with Gazebo 11. So that may be an option to explore.
