Has anybody used the Cyton Arm ( ) with ros? I'm interested in things such as a URDF description, and anything required to get it working with OpenRAVE.

I see that the servos in it can be controlled by the ax12_controller_core ros node. ( )

I have a cyton arm and would like to use it with ROS, so I guess I have this same question. I would prefer something as high-level as possible (eg, how to use with arm_navigation or moveit). Thanks!

ax12_controller_core package is deprecated and will be removed as soon as ETurtle is released. I suggest you use the recently released dynamixel_motor stack instead. It's pretty much the same code cleaned up and packaged into a single stack.

We use a Cyton Gamma 1500 robai arm on out MOnarCH robot , our code is partially released in the following repos:

The URDF model is ready to be used in Gazebo (need to be attached to a robot base).
