Simulate wide-angle lens for vision sensors and a bit more

by Mykola for Open Source Robotics Foundation

Gazebo currently does support simulation of wide-angle lens cameras like fish-eyes. This project involves using Gazebo's graphics rendering engine OGRE to create wide-angle camera sensors, potentially by stitching multiple camera images together in shaders then adding distortion effects. The results should be validated using computer vision libraries such as opencv.
