Hi,

Yes, basicly I added the ft_sensor plugin to my urdf. Following my code:

<gazebo reference="${name}_fixed_base_joint">
<provideFeedback>true</provideFeedback>
</gazebo>
<!-- The ft_sensor plugin -->
<gazebo>
<plugin name="ft_sensor" filename="libgazebo_ros_ft_sensor.so">
    <updateRate>100.0</updateRate>
    <topicName>ft_sensor_topic</topicName>
    <jointName>schunk_wsg50_fixed_base_joint</jointName>
</plugin>

some remarks:

  • this plugin has to work an a joint, in my case "${name}_fixed_base_joint" is the name of the joint connecting the robot to the end-effector and is fixed type
  • have look at the plugin implementation to figure out the reference frame in which the wrench is given

Hope this can help. :)
