Gazebo Office .world

5 views (last 30 days)
I want to perform Localization of TurtleBot Using Monte Carlo Localization in MATLAB 2019 in Windows and ROS kinetic in a separate Linux (ubuntu 16,04) according to this tutorial : where It is instructed to install ROS Virtual machine. The ROS VM has a range of Gazebo world start-up scripts which are unavailable in my ROS kinetic installed in Linux. It is not even available in server. How can I get that Gazebo Office .world file for my ROS? and Would that tutorial be effective in my case?

Hi Labid,
You can find the relevant Gazebo files for the "Office" environment in the virtual machine you downloaded.
The main world file ( is located in the /opt/ros/melodic/share/turtlebot3_gazebo/worlds folder.
You can copy the whole turtlebot3_gazebo package to a new ROS Melodic installation and launch the world from there:
  • Install the standard turtlebot3_gazebo package
sudo apt install ros-melodic-turtlebot3-gazebo
  • Copy the /opt/ros/melodic/share/turtlebot3_gazebo from the virtual machine to your other ROS installation in /opt/ros/melodic/share
  • Try starting Gazebo with the new world
export TURTLEBOT3_MODEL=waffle_pi
source /opt/ros/melodic/setup.bash
roslaunch turtlebot3_gazebo turtlebot3_mw_office.launch
