Hi all,

As anyone already used ROS with an industrial motion controller (something looking like EPOS2)?

I am curious about how the link between the ROS PC and the controllers was physically achieved (USB, field network...) and which drivers and packages were needed...

Thanks ;)

A quick search gives me the epos_driver pkg and the wpi-rover pkg. Not sure about their state of development though.

Hello Gert, thanks for the links. These do pop-up easily indeed ;) I am actually expecting "hands on" feedback from people who have "played" with such a setup. Something like: "I have tried controller X with package Y and it does not work, you'd better use ... instead".
