Hi All,

With Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS Melodic version. The robot is controlled with Moveit! package and I am able to control the robot's position and perform path planning.
I need to control the gripper(activation, open, close, reset) through ROS from the robot.  I found that it can be controlled when the gripper is directly hooked into a computer. But I need it to be controlled from the robot the way it is done with the URcaps. Is there a way or if anyone can direct me how to proceed with, that would be helpful.

Thank you
