Hi, I am following the tutorials in

I have only one laptop mounted on the robot (p3dx) hence i am not following the 7th and 8th section of the above mentioned tutorial.

When i run the

rosrun p2os_dashboard p2os_dashboard

i see the dashboard getting displayed but except the Rosout (in green) ui others are not colored (red/green) and the battery is 0% even though the robot is fully charged. I am not able to enable or disable the motors. I see the problem is here itself.

And when i run the

rosrun p2os_drivers p2os

i get the following errors.

[ INFO] [1323459143.327099680]: using serial port: [/dev/ttyS0]
[ INFO] [1323459143.360479690]: P2OS connection opening serial port /dev/ttyS0...
[ERROR] [1323459143.360617485]: P2OS::Setup():tcgetattr():
[ERROR] [1323459143.360707540]: p2os setup failed...

I have given the read and write permissions to ttyS* and ttyUSB*. I am able to use ROSARIA and get the robot moving using keyboard operations. I am sure something is being missed. Pls let me know

Thanks, Karthik

Ok found the issue. Had to remap the param name port to /dev/ttyUSB0 Its working now

Thanks, Karthik

You may update the param at ./p2os_driver/include/p2os_driver/robot_params.h but beware that the sick laser usage might have a conflict at this port. You may have it as a param in the launch file.
