Hello, I'm a beginner of ROS, the version is Kinetic with Ubuntu 16.04.

Because my gripper is used output i/o signal to control opening or closing with fs100 controller.

Now I want to control the gripper with ROS, I'm already install Motoman_driver on my controller.

I found this topic which is talking about I/O of motoman robot, but I can't find the same cpp files in the current version.

There are no other detail tutorials online, so hope you guys cloud help me figure out it.

Thanks a lot.

Edit: I follow these topic 1 _ 2 _ 3 to modify motoman_driver files.

After I did that, the services read_single_io write_single_io do not show actually.

cyc@cyc-X550JX:~$ rosservice call /robot_enable 
success: True
message: "Motoman robot is now enabled and will accept motion commands."
cyc@cyc-X550JX:~$ rosservice list

What should I do to call it, let it connect to the address of IO that I want?

Hi, so how you control simple gripper with motoman_driver( open and close)?

Finally, I use Arduino to control gripper individually.
