Robotiq 2F grippers with Universal_robot_ROS_driver
/ Most recent by Karthik
I am working on the Universal robot e-series(3e and 10e) with 2F gripper(2F-85) with the latest ROS driver(Universal_Robots_ROS_Driver). Not the old ur_modern_driver.
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.
