iGibson Github

iGibson is a simulation environment providing fast visual rendering and physics simulation based on Bullet. iGibson is equipped with fifteen fully interactive high quality scenes, hundreds of large 3D scenes reconstructed from real homes and offices, and compatibility with datasets like CubiCasa5K and 3D-Front, providing 12000+ additional interactive scenes. Some of the features of iGibson include domain randomization, integration with motion planners and easy-to-use tools to collect human demonstrations. With these scenes and features, iGibson allows researchers to train and evaluate robotic agents that use visual signals to solve navigation and manipulation tasks such as opening doors, picking up and placing objects, or searching in cabinets.

We release a large dataset that consists of 15 fully interactive scenes and 500+ object models annotated with material and physical properties on top of PartNet and Motion Dataset. It also introduces new features such as physically based rendering, 1-beam and 16-beam LiDAR, domain randomization, motion planning, tools to collect human demos and more! For more details, please refer to our arxiv preprint.

  • 2020.06 End of our CVPR20 sim2real challenge with iGibson! Thanks all the participants, specially team inspir.ai, the winner of this year’s edition. Their solution transferred best between iGibson simulation and the real apartment achieving maximum scores in visual navigation with and without obstacles.

  • 2020.04 iGibson Dataset v0.05 Released: This release include the simulation environment, ten houses annotated with interactive objects of five categories, and one house fully annotated to be interactive and with selected textures. We include documentation with code examples and baselines of navigation agents with reinforcement learning state-of-the-art algorithms.

  • 2020.02 Beginning of the simulation phase of our CVPR Challenge "Sim2Real Challenge with Gibson": Do you want to see your visual navigation algorithm run on a real robot but you don't want to deal with the real world setup? Participate in our CVPR20 challenge! We will test the best entries from a first simulation-only phase on our own Locobots in a real apartment. If you want to participate, follow the instructions in the challenge page.

Blue indicates iGibson 2.0 features and red indicates iGibson 1.0 features.

Object States

iGibson 2.0 supports object states, including temperature, wetness level, cleanliness level, and toggled and sliced states, necessary to cover a wider range of tasks.

Predicate Logic Functions

iGibson 2.0 implements a set of predicate logic functions that map the simulator states to logic states like Cooked or Soaked.

Generative System

Given a logic state, iGibson 2.0 can sample valid physical states that satisfy it. It can generate infinite instances of tasks with minimal human effort.

VR Interaface

iGibson 2.0 includes a virtual reality (VR) interface to immerse humans in its scenes to collect demonstrations.

Interactive Scenes

We released iGibson dataset, which consists of 15 fully interactive scenes and 500+ object models.

Compatibility with Large Scene Datasets

Support for 12000+ scenes from CubiCasa5K and 3D-Front with full interaction. Backward compatibility GibsonV1's 572 buildings.

Robot Models

of the most common real robots and AI agents: Fetch and Freight, Husky, TurtleBot v2, Locobot, Minitaur, JackRabbot, a generic quadrocopter, Humanoid and Ant.

Physically Realistic Articulated Objects

Additional annotation of materials and dynamic properties on top of PartNet and Motion Dataset for more realistic simulation.

Fast Physics-Based Rendering and Physics

Achieving more than 100 fps with full-physics on fully-interactive scenes. More than 400 fps for rendering only.

Motion Planning and Human-iG Interface

Built in motion planners (e.g. RRT, BiRRT, LazyPRM) for arm and base. Intuitive Human-iG interface for efficient demonstration collection.

Multi-Agent Support

to train in collaborative or adversarial setups, where an arbitrary number of agents can see and interact with each other.

Reinforcement Learning Baselines

Reinforcement learning starter code for navigation tasks with visual and LiDAR signals using SAC.

Installing iGibson

You can install iGibson from pip, from source or using container.

  • iGibson 1.0 Dataset of Scenes: Dataset of 15 fully interactive scenes based on real-world homes, for robots to train in navigation and manipulation. We also include back-compatibility with the hundreds of 3D reconstructed scenes from our previous simulator, Gibson. Additionally, we provide compatibility to the scenes from CubiCasa5K and 3D-Front with additional 12000+ interactive scenes.
  • iGibson 2.0 Dataset of Scenes: New versions of the 15 fully interactive scenes, more densely populated with objects.
  • BEHAVIOR Object Dataset: Dataset of object models annotated with physical and semantic properties used by the BEHAVIOR benchmark.
  • Due to artists' copyright, the datasets are encrypted and allowed only to be used with iGibson. You can request a key with this form.
