I have a ATI wireless force/torque sensor now and I can't find its ros-driver in ROS sensor page.It seems that no one has mentioned it in Q&A forum.The source code downloaded from ATI official website is written with Java.Will it be possible to communicate with ROS ? After searching from github,I found


But it obviously not a complete one. Dear guys,can you give me some advices? Any answer would be appreciated!

It would be nice if you could tell us how you solved it. Just write an answer below and post it. Then you -- or someone else -- can accept your answer.

That way, future readers won't be left guessing as to how you "solved it".

ATI has provided the source code written with Java.If you read it,you will find that it just got data by sockets.First,set your computer and sensor in same wlan.Then write a ROS node ,choose the correct port and IP.In this way you could get the F/T data and publish it.Just see abestick/ati_wnet_ft

Hi~ I have the same problem, Hi~, recently, I have used the package that you have mentioned to connect the ati mini58 f/t sensor using wireless box, but after roslaunch ft.launch, there is no response even no error, I have changed the ip address in stream.javeaand ft_publisher.py of my device, and I run rostopic echo /ati_ft_data , but I could not receive any data. Could you tell me how to changed the inital parameters of the package according to my device. Thanks!!!!!
