I've been trying to interface with the COB_SCRIPT_SERVER but all of my attempts are generally resulting in an aborted state, although in Gazebo it's clear that the robot is completing the action. Even the included scripts are resulting in the same behaviour. For simplicity, I'm going to reference a run of one of the included scripts I say generally, because about 10% of the time, the individual action will result in a success state. For example, the tray will reach down, but the arm will abort, or vice versa. I've experienced this on both machines I've used for development. I'm not sure if I'm missing a step during the installation, or if there is a bug that's preventing the script server from running properly.

The problem you describe is not related to the cob_script_server but to the trajectory controller which is moving the components in gazebo. The script_server just forwards the action result which is returned by the actionlib interface to the gazebo controllers. So far I am not aware of a sulution solving this. If you want to investigate furhter you'd probably dive into cob_controller_configuration_gazebo.

Thanks for the help, at least now I know it's not something that I've done. I'll just work around it until I get a chance to run it on the physical robot
