I have recently started learning robotics. Being at uni, I had access to Linux PCs where I could easily run ROS and Gazebo. However, due to the current pandemic and closure of universities, I now have to rely on my MacBook.
Following are the specs of my machine:
Core i7 2.7GHz Quad-Core
Intel Iris Graphics 655 1536 MB
Is it possible to run ROS and Gazebo simulations on a machine with these specs?
Although it is mentioned on the gazebo website that a dedicated Nvidia graphics card is required, but I have found threads on this forum where ROS and Gazebo run fine on intel graphics. For example:
I also tried running a gazebo simulation using Ubuntu with VirtualBox but got a Segmentation Core Dumped error. I did some research and found a thread where it was mentioned that it may be caused by using a non-Nvidia graphics card:
Need some guidance on how to run gazebo simulations on MacBook.
