I want to move two dynamixel ax-12a motors, one as pan and the other as tilt. Writing the comands in the shell works fine e.g. rostopic pub -1 /pan_controller/command std_msgs/Float64 -- 1.5

Now I want to move them by writing a python srcipt but I don't know which command I need to use. Thanks for your help!

Line 7 would look like:

pub = rospy.Publisher('/pan_controller/command', Float64, queue_size=10)

and 13 like:
