What I'm trying to do is getting the UR5 talking to ROS, i experience a problem with executing the node after bringing up the UR5 and had no trouble with that using this command

roslaunch ur_bringup ur5_bringup.launch robot_ip:= [reverse_port:=50001] and also got a message saying " Robot connected"

But trying to run the node in a different window , it only showes "waiting for server..." and it never execute it.

I'm using Indigo and firmware version 1.8. Any idea on how can i fix this problem?

Thank you very much in advance

How do I know which firmware version I am using? I am trying to figure out if the modern driver is right for me

I have solved this problem by downloading the package ur_modern_driver from instead of the package from Universal Robots (ur_driver)
