Hi all,

I'm trying to control pr2's head (i.e., moving up and down, left and right) in simulation, but couldn't get it working. To this effort, I start with playing with controlling right gripper as in the tutorial ( ). However, publishing a command does not seem to work (?!). It did not change anything. Actually I do not know what to expect..

Can anyone give me some directions of controlling pr2's head? Thanks a lot.

For moving the gripper, if you're running diamondback and newer, did you follow this link?

For moving the head, check out this tutorial.
