2017-04-20 14:41:43 -0500 marked best answer PR2 simulation not working ROS Hydro

So I ran: roslaunch gazebo_ros empty_world.launch

to start Gazebo in an empty world. The gazebo window pops up but the terminal stops at this: gazebo/set_physics_properties] has not been advertised, waiting...

Msg Connected to gazebo master @ http://127.0.0.1:11345 Msg Publicized address: 10.0.0.9 Msg Connected to gazebo master @ http://127.0.0.1:11345 Msg Publicized address: 10.0.0.9

Even after waiting for awhile, the terminal seems to be stuck at this point and does not allow me to type any commands. I've tried redoing the command multiple but it keeps stopping at the same point.

2016-05-13 17:58:50 -0500 asked a question tutorial for pr2 simulator arm movement

Hi all,

I was wondering if there were any tutorials online that would help me move the arm for the PR2 robot in Gazebo. I tried a lot of tutorials already but all of them seemed outdated with the code and all. Any help at all would be appreciated.

2016-03-10 18:54:27 -0500 marked best answer what to do on the PR2 robot simulation?

So I ran the line roslaunch gazebo_ros empty_world.launch

So now I have an empty world and spawned a pr2 robot. How would I go about making the robot do something? For example waving? Do I just type commands in a new terminal? Very new to ROS :(

Thanks

2016-03-06 18:40:35 -0500 asked a question Simple Pr2 Program?

Hello,

I'm a complete newbie to ubuntu, ros, and the pr2 robot simulator. How can I write a simple program to make the pr2 robot do something in simulation? An example with an explanation of the code/how to run it maybe?

Thanks.

2016-03-05 11:02:39 -0500 commented question Where is the command interface for the pr2 robot simulator?

I have ubuntu 13.04 and ros hydro. I mean how do you run code on the pr2 in the simulation? This link gave me a list of commands you can run for example pr2.openGripper(side) will open one of the grippers. I was wondering where you type these commands in.

The tutorials don't seem to help.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks :)

2016-03-01 22:11:34 -0500 asked a question Where to write code for pr2 robot simulator?

So at this link: http://wiki.ros.org/robot_script , commands for making the pr2 robot simulator perform certain actions are given. Where would I write this code and how would I run it so that the pr2 robot on the gazebo simulator performed these tasks?

Detailed instructions would be appreciated :)

when I run rostopic echo /cmd_vel it says "WARNING: topic [/cmd_vel] does not appear to be published yet". There also seems to be no "/base_controller/command" topic.

This may sound like a dumb question, but how do you check that? Certain lines of code that I run?

Yea I am not sure what is going on. The keyboard controls are still not working.

2016-02-26 21:46:36 -0500 commented question Keyboard commands to move PR2 robot on ROS Hydro not working

I was looking at this tutorial:http://wiki.ros.org/pr2_simulator/Tutorials/BasicPR2Controls And it said: "(You need to keep the window in which you launch this node in focus while you drive the robot around)."

What does it mean by keep the terminal in focus?
