Hello! I have some problems about the simulation of Kinova.I use it on ROS indigo in Ubuntu14.04. When I follow the tutorial for simulation,


roslaunch j2n6s300_moveit_config j2n6s300_virtual_robot_demo.launch


roslaunch kinova_gazebo robot_launch.launch kinova_robotType:=j2n6s300


Then , I opened gazebo ,moveit and Rviz.When the gazebo was just opened, the robotic arm slammed on the ground ,then moved a few times and got up. There is no error during the running of these two programs. but , I can't control the model in gazebo.When I drag the end of the robot arm, I can plan and execute in Rviz,but,there is no response in gazebo.

When I entered.


rosrun kinova_demo pose_action_client.py -v -r j2n6s300 mdeg -- 0.01 0 0 0 10 10


There are no errors or reactions.After waiting for a while I have to exit it with "ctrl C".

When I entered,


rosrun kinova_control move_robot.py j2n6s300


The robot will return to home position in gazebo.

I don't know why.Could you help me ? I want to simulate Kinova on gazebo.

                                                                                                                                           Thank you !
