What BlenSor is not

BlenSor is not designed for realtime simulation Accurate simulation of complex scenarios is a time consuming task. BlenSor does not rely on the Blender (or any other) game engine and can thus simulate very complex scenarios. It is designed to produce data for offline data processing. However if you are searching for a realtime emulation of a single line laser visit MORSE or Gazebo (Stage). They are designed for Simulation of robot environments and also implement a single line laser range scanner.
