Hi ,

im trying to control two aubo_i5 robot arms simultaneously. But my both arms have different ip address. So i dont know how to control the arms. I tried launching two instances of moveit with different namespaces. But im getting the error. Even when im using single robot,but giving the namespace im getting the same error. I have seen multi robot system of motoman. But they have said they are using single controller with single ip. But im not familiar with how the controllers work as im new to this area. My move it launch file and the error is as shown below. Any help is much appreciated.

This may not be what you came here to hear, but have you asked Aubo about this? It's their product, and they appear to have ROS support, so you may want to ask their support.
