Simulate 3 finger hand in Gazebo
/ Most recent by MatthiasMayr

There are posts that suggest that the 3 finger hand can be simulated in Gazebo .
However if I start the shipped launch file
mon launch robotiq_3f_gripper_articulated_gazebo robotiq_gripper_empty_world.launchI only get empty world in Gazebo with an non-moving hand. I am missing the step where I can control the hand in any way.
The only additional topic I get is
but it also doesn't publish anything.
According to the Atlas tutorial it looks like there should be additional nodes for the state and commands .
What am I missing? I can't find additional executables or launch files in the Gazebo packages.
This is with Ubuntu 18.04, melodic and Gazebo 9.0. I cloned the ros-industrial/robotiq repo today.
Did you launch all the files in the Robotiq_3f_gripper package? Please see attached screenshots of what you need. You can access these files here: http://wiki.ros.org/robotiq.
You can also find installation procedures here: https://github.com/ros-industrial/robotiq.
Keep us updated if any progress comes up !
At the moment we have no instruction to simulate our gripper on Gazebo.
I think some persons did it but we don t have instruction from our side.
Maybe someone from the community will be able to share its experience.
Here are the different packages which allow you to control the 3-Finger Gripper and simulate it using the Gazebo simulator which is commonly used with ROS:
- Articulated Gazebo (robotiq_3f_gripper_articulated_gazebo & plugins) — Loads up the articulated model of the gripper into an empty Gazebo simulation.
With the new package, you can really get a grip on the functionalities of the 3-Finger Gripper!
I recommend you send your question to [email protected] the person in charge will answer your questions.
Sorry for the delay. I had to gather some info before answering you.
First, don't worry about commenting older post, it is always good to continue a discussion if it is needed.
For your inquiry, unfortunately the visualisation package that are used in Gazebo were not contributed by Robotiq. It has been done by the community. Therefore, it is not something we support or help troubleshoot.
Same thing with your PID, it is really hard for us to suggest or recommend values since it is not something we have created.
I am sorry for the inconvenience that it could cause you.
Hope you will be able to make it work!
