How would I go about building a palletising application in ROS if I want to use the ur_modern_driver to communicate with the UR10?


  • UR10
  • UR Sim 3.4.5-100
  • ROS Indigo
  • Ubuntu 14.04

Can you clarify what would make 'palletising' different from other ROS applications that control manipulator motion?

May I ask why did you delete the question? It's definitely worthwhile discussing how such an application could be created using various ROS components. I just wanted to get you to write down your first thoughts on what the requirements are that make this a special case.

I realised this was a very broad question.

Thoughts on the requirements:

  • Handling vector of vectors for stacked pallets
  • Storing pallet frames - each part can be palletted by incrementing the frame by fixed x, y, z
  • pick-up & put-down pose for gripper
  • intermediate states for robot
