Abstract

The rapid advancements in robotics, driven by technologies such as artificial intelligence,computer vision, and machine learning, have led to numerous applications in daily life. Real-world experiments for evaluating robotic performance can be expensive and time-consuming, prompting a shift towards virtual simulations. This essay explores the role of virtual simulations in robotics, focusing on critical tasks such as path planning, obstacle avoidance, and target detection. We discuss the use of A* algorithm for path planning, segmentation maps and depth maps for obstacle avoidance, and You Only Look Once (YOLO) for target detection in drones. Additionally, we highlight the potential of digital twin technology, which connects a physical drone with its virtual counterpart, allowing researchers to optimize performance and evaluate behavior in various environments. The increasing popularity of virtual simulations in robotics research offers a cost-effective and efficient method for optimizing robot performance and paves the way for new applications that can enhance our lives.
