you can also use image, of course, but you'd need to adapt it to do the corresponding decoding.

Probably the only sustainable way to do this is to use the rosbridge, and have python3 "on the side" of the bridge.

2019-02-26 04:37:00 -0600 marked best answer Determine tool frame (aka measuring tool center point)

I've been (unsuccessfully) looking for a package that could work out the tool center point point of a tool attached to the flange of an industrial robot. Some controllers (e.g. ABB's IRC5) contain an implementation of a 4-point method to determine the TCP and it would be very useful if a similar process would be available in ROS directly.

Does anything already exists in this direction? And if not, does the 4-point method cited above have a more official name or theoretical background I could look up?

2018-11-02 04:21:02 -0600 marked best answer Headless motion planning

Is it generally possible to run the motion planning tools of ROS in an completely headless manner? To be more specific, can MoveIt run without RViz interface? Virtually all launch files out there include RViz in them, and there's little to no documentation (at least to my knowledge) on how to run this without a user interface.

Is it simply not really possible to do? Or is it just not documented?
