- Multiple instances can run in parallel and with per-instance configuration, allowing for maximum flexibility and scalability.
- ROS/ANVEL plugins introduce support for ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04
- A new, highly performant lidar sensor plugin emulates the communications protocol of VLP-16 and HDL-32E sensors
A new RTSP camera plugin allows efficient video streaming from simulated sensors over the network
- ANVEL External API updates add additional batch functionality to many calls
- New bundled vehicles and environments are included
Comprehensive release notes are available.
