Hello Everyboby!

I am working on universal robot UR5 and UR10. I already followed the tutorials on github about how to control a real UR5 by ros on this link . So i already knew how to control one UR5. Now i want to do the same experience with two UR5. I already studied a lot the URDF files because i think that's important to succeed it. Can someone give me some helps about how to do? that's very important for me to do it. I am using ROS indigo on ubuntu 14.04

Thank you!

I didn't solve it, I always have the same problem. Right now I want to use for the both robot. Do you have an idea about how to do it?

There are two sides to this: you'll have to start two driver instances in their respective namespaces and configure MoveIt correctly. I suggest you update your original question with more information / how you configured the launch files and MoveIt side of things.

If you start two instances of the driver (no matter which driver you use) in a namespace, you'll have to either run the test_move script in a namespace as well, or update the action server URI it uses in the script to connect to the one you want to test.
