When you design a simulation scene or read and write properties of components in a simulation scene, express values in appropriate units of measurement. The robotics simulator recognizes many of the same SI units and SI-derived units that LabVIEW recognizes, as described in the following table.

Quantity Name Unit Abbreviation
acceleration (gravity) meters per second squared m/s2
frequency (sampling rate) hertz Hz
latitude, longitude degree deg
length (altitude, range, position of objects relative to origin) meter m
mass kilogram kg
plane angle (rotation) radian rad

Resolution, a quantity associated with simulated sensors, expresses the minimum accuracy of the data being acquired.
