ST-R17 ROS Driver

Installation

  1. Clone the Repositories:

    cd ~/catkin_ws/src
    git clone http://github.com/yycho0108/st_r17_ros_driver.git
  2. Install the Dependencies:

    rosdep update
    rosdep install st_r17_ros_driver --ignore-src
  3. Build the project:

    catkin build st_r17_ros_driver

Documentation

Generating URDF:

Refer to the instructions. The CAD design files are available here.

Generating IKFast:

(Reference)

roscd st_r17_ikfast_plugin
# options : decimal rounding
./generate_ikfast_solver.sh

Run

The following are the most basic demonstrations of functions.

See the included packages such as st_r17_calibration or st_r17_gazebo for more involved demos.

Rviz Simulation Demo

roslaunch st_r17_moveit_config demo.launch 
roslaunch st_r17_moveit_config move_group_interface.launch

Hardware Demo

roslaunch st_r17_moveit_config hardware.launch
roslaunch st_r17_moveit_config demo.launch sim:=false
roslaunch st_r17_moveit_config move_group_interface.launch
