Poppy Ergo Jr Simulator

Functional Description: Poppy Project, through Poppy Education, wants users to get used to robotics, even without owning a physical robot.

For that purpose, Poppy Project team created a dummy robot in Pypot that is meant to be used in conjunction with a consumer application. We choose to develop a web hosted application using a 3D engine (Threejs) to render the robot.

Our ambition is to have a completely standalone simulated robot with physics. Some prototypes were created to benchmark possible solutions.
