in this tutorial about ROS Server installation: Link Section 3.4 Tie Signals to the System Outputs, I can't find those signals by default, can you please tell me how to create them for Two Arms Robot like YuMi IRB 14000? thanks in advance.

The section before that one (ie: section 3.3) asks you to create them. Did you do that?

@gvdhoorn True, but that was for one arm, the robot has two arms in my case, and I'm not sure if I should create signal for T_ROB_L and another one for T_ROB_R? or should I tie both on the same signal? thanks in advance.

Well, that's not what you asked. So please try to be more clear next time.

abb_driver does not directly support YuMi. The only way to use it would be to install abb_driver twice, but that would need changes to the source code of abb_driver.

You would then have two tasks, and indeed would probably need to duplicate some of the signals.

But without those changes, you cannot use abb_driver with YuMi directly. The status of abb_driver is explained here.
