About

This repository is a ROS package that contains several scripts that:

  • simplify the usage of main Baxter functions,
  • allow the control of the Baxter end-effector using the keyboard,
  • publish the feed of an external camera through ROS,
  • help find the HSV values needed for simple color filtering,
  • perform pick and place operations via visual servoing of Baxter's cameras.

Usage

The scripts are meant to be modified for individual usage, whereas easy_baxter.py provides a high-level, simplified API for new scripts.
