Hi, I was able to make to make the lwa4p work using Peak CAN Adapter through the schunk_robot package . However when I try to configure the Gripper i found some package but or they are obsolete (Brics_showcase_industry) or are not configure for this Gripper(wsg_50). I used the ros_canopen package but I dont know how to configure it to use this gripper.

PS: I am using ROS Indigo..

Hi Jorgelu, I have problems on how to use ros_canopen. I use a usb-to-can from IXXAT corp. I'm new to ROS. I don't know how to use the package. Do you have any ideas? Many thanks.

Jorgelu, Hello, thank you for the link below that code helps alot. However I use the Schunk LWA3 and with the yaml files used to launch the arm I am unsure how the grippers modules are specified as not a rotary joint? Do you have any ideas?

For anyone interested i changed the config files of the schunk_lwa4p including the PG70 gripper to them. It is working fine using the IPA dashboard (I put some values to test).

Hello Jorgelu, I am trying to create a moveit package for Schunk LWA4P and PG70 together. It requires all dimensions to be in the same unit. so it would be helpful if i obtain below, Can you please describe on what basis you fixed gripper limits as 0.3 to 1.14?
what physical unit does it follow?
