    Can't enable robot

    Hi Jose, I hope you are well. Were you able to resolve this? It seems to be that some safety contactor is open somewhere in the controller but I cannot pinpoint it.

    Sawyer will not boot

    The error you are seeing is a secure Boot error, I have had this happen in linux before i would recommend is burning a external copy of linux on to a flash drive, then changing the boot order to your flash drive, then go into your bios and turn off secure boot. Then shutting down the computer and unplugging your flashdrive. I would recommend turning back on secure boot if you are worried about security. If you can't get into the bios then pull the cmos battery out for 10 minutes, (might not be a bad idea to replace the cmos battery as well since its a used robot) From Bradley (mechanical engineering student)

    Baxter showing Linux screen

    The first thing i would try is replacing the cmos battery on the motherboard if your robot has been unpluged for 5 years its going to need a new cmos battery. Leave the battery out of the robot for about 20 minutes. Then i would look for a cmos jumper this should clear out any bios passwords then you should be able to run the setup. let me know if this works. From Bradley (Mechanical engineering student)

    Baxter showing Linux screen

    Hello Julian, Were you able to solve the problem? I am having the same problem. In my case, the Baxter was sitting (not plugged in) for over 5 years. This is the first time we fired-up the robot and I got the same screen as you had. I would appreciate if you could share possible solutions. Thanks.

    Random Vision Picks / QR Capabilities

    Can sawyer use its cameras to scan QR codes and link it to an excel file, or can it only be used for locating the robot? Doing so could help us process data in a more effective manner, saving time and space. What sequence do I need to code a random vision pick to pick up parts from a random assortment, instead of creating patterns?

    Screen does not turn on.

    I have a new old stock Sawyer robot that the screen does not turn on when the controller gets powered up. The safety relay, PC, Moxa IO and the phoenix contact 24vdc power supply turn on but the 7.5vdc and the motor power supply don't turn on. Is there something I am overlooking that would cause this?

    ROBOTIQ Hand E-adaptive gripper

    We have two Sawyer robots in our lab and want to purchase grippers for them. We are interested in ROBOTIQ Hand E-adaptive gripper, but are not sure it will work. Would it be possible to use this brand and what kind of specific hardware (adapter, or connection) do we need?

    Upgrading the firmware of rethink Baxter

    Hi, I'm Adeeba Anwar working in Nextbridge Pvt. Ltd as an associate Mechatronics Engr. We have rethink Baxter and need to update its firmware. I have considered support of rethink robotics for FTP access for the latest available update via email, but they did not reply. Is there any alternate way to update the firmware of Baxter? Will the latest Noetic version of ROS support Baxter?

    multiple gripper connection

    Hi Team, How can we connect multiple gripper to sawyer robot and control those grippers just to open and close from intera studio. Please provide any help regarding the above challenge.
  14. Hi all, I have been trying to follow the guide to installing ROS Kinetic using ubuntu 16.04 as mentioned in the guide: However, when I reach the stage to install keys I continue to have errors. I would appreciate any help. Below is instructions I have used and the problem I faced. sawyer@sawyer-HP-Compaq-8100-Elite-CMT-PC:~$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb xenial main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list' sawyer@sawyer-HP-Compaq-8100-Elite-CMT-PC:~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key 421C365BD9FF1F717815A3895523BAEEB01FA116 Executing: /tmp/tmp.U3ESDyQRT6/ --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key 421C365BD9FF1F717815A3895523BAEEB01FA116 gpg: requesting key B01FA116 from hkp server gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 6: Could not resolve host: gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found. gpg: Total number processed: 0 gpg: keyserver communications error: keyserver helper internal error gpg: keyserver communications error: general error gpg: keyserver receive failed: general error Screenshot for the error
  15. I am trying to control the Sawyer robot with the help of the Intera MoveIt tutorial. The problem is with the following command: roslaunch sawyer_moveit_config sawyer_moveit.launch electric_gripper:=true The first time I ran it everything went fine, I was able to plan and execute movements in rviz. But when I ran the command again today the following error came up and nothing works anymore. [ERROR] [1638439994.358624936]: Link 'right_gripper_tip' declared as part of a chain in group 'right_arm' is not known to the URDF

    Gripper failed to calibrate

    Hello, In our lab we have the Baxter two finger gripper attached to a Sawyer. In the past couple of weeks , using the example in the intera_examples (from the intera_sdk ROS packages, ) has been throwing the following error : "Calibration failed.". It is unclear why this has started happening after a couple of years of operation without issue. This is a problem because we then cannot use the gripper (The error happens in any script when instantiating the Gripper class in the intera python api for the first time : ). We noticed that running the over and over again generally results with it finally working after some time. Moreover, once it works, then it is not a problem again until the robot is rebooted. Any ideas what could be happening or how we could fix this? We are starting to suspect a hardware malfunction. Many thanks
  17. I've been working through connecting a sawyer arm to ROS kinetic on an Ubuntu 16.04 PC. I've followed through the "workstation setup" and am on "hello robot". The pinging all works and rostopic list prints out as expected, as does the joint state printing function. But when I try running the example python programs no motion at all occurs, what could I be doing wrong? is there a hidden setting in the robot which needs changing to enable motion beyond the enabling already done by the earlier python script. P.S. Also, after I've run ./, why does a yellow bracketed section appear in my terminals before the typing prompt? What does this mean, I am somehow logged in to the robot when typing those commands? Thanks

    Gripper does not connect to Sawyer

    Hello, I have been trying to connect this gripper to the Sawyer however it doesn't seem to properly work. Basically, if I run the example code $ rosrun intera_examples everything works perfectly. However, if I run this simple code: # Sawyer Packages import os import rospy import intera_interface from intera_interface import Gripper # Initialize ROS node, registering it with the Master rospy.init_node('Sawyer_AssistiveGym') # Create an instance of intera_interface's Limb class limb = intera_interface.Limb('right') # Enable the robot in case the emergency button was pressed os.system('rosrun intera_interface -e') limb.move_to_neutral(timeout=15.0, speed=0.6) # Use Gripper arm = 'right_gripper' _gripper = Gripper('right') then I get the following error: [INFO] [1635963926.594737]: Robot Enabled [WARN] [1635963927.249393]: Specifying gripper by 'side' is deprecated, please use full name (ex: 'right_gripper'). Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/gabrigoo/assistive-gym/", line 17, in <module> _gripper = Gripper('right') File "/home/gabrigoo/ros_ws/src/intera_sdk/intera_interface/src/intera_interface/", line 47, in __init__ intera_dataflow.wait_for( File "/home/gabrigoo/ros_ws/src/intera_sdk/intera_interface/src/intera_dataflow/", line 42, in wait_for raise OSError(errno.ETIMEDOUT, timeout_msg) TimeoutError: [Errno 110] Failed to get gripper. No gripper attached on the robot. Why is this happening? Thanks in advance!

    Sawyer will not boot

    Just purchased a used Sawyer and when powered up I get this message and it seems to be looking for a password? Any ideas?

    Dashboard to send/receive data from Sawyer

    I am trying to create a server dashboard using Python that is linked to a number of devices (eg. sensors, conveyor, cameras and other robot brands) using an ethernet port switch, and send/receive data to Sawyer using this Dashboard and have a few questions. This dashboard is in the server PC with the following wired connection: Server PC > Port Switches > Sawyer (and other devices) I have referred to this link below but I would like to get more flexibility to control it (trajectory control etc) so I was looking into the SDK tutorials. I have tested the examples for the Sawyer in Oracle VM and made a sample program to run it. It resembles the program seen here: 1. How do I for example, retrieve joint angle (and maybe camera image) and show it in my dashboard? Have anyone done something like this before? Generally, I will have these shown in the dashboard: robot status (eg idle/ready/stopped/error) program name camera image joint angles 2. I plan to have my (currently non-existent) dashboard outside of the VM but in the same PC. How do I establish the communication to the robot from outside the VM? I have tried using the same leading IP address as my WiFi (NAT) but I cannot get a connection without disabling my NAT or PCIE. Individual connections was tested to be working fine so I think my error is about using WiFi and PCIE together. Connections: 1. PC <-> VM (NAT) 2. VM <-> Sawyer (PCIE) by TCP/IP Network: NAT: subnet: PCIE: subnet: Sawyer: subnet: Additional Info: Ubuntu 16.04 + ROS Kinetic Intera 5.3 3. I assume I needed to have a program for server (PC) and client (VM) so I made a sample socket client server program. I did try using packet sender to send data through TCP/IP in Intera and back from Sawyer. Can I do the same with sockets? This is my first time doing this so I appreciate any guidance you guys can provide. Thanks.

    Baxter CAD model

    There's a grabcad model of the arm here: (Free to register, and a very good site for all sorts of components.) PS: Im glad someone else is here...

    self-collision clicksmart SDK mode moveit

    Hi, I have a problem with the adjusted clicksmart plate using moveit. i used this repository: I have executed all the commands which are described, but in Rviz l6 is highlighted red and the moveit controller fails everytime. The collition geometry overlapps, so it has to be self-collision. Is there anything else i have to do? Thank you, Andreas

    Very large and special vaccum gripper

    Sorry for the error: It is ca. less of 1 meter long therefore Sawyer don't know which space are its dead zone.
  27. Hi, We have some trouble with Sawyer, or exactly with the settings of a custom gripper. I can't find any possibility to set the dimensions of our custom grippers. It is ca. less of 1 meter long therefore Sawyer don't know witch space are its dead zone. ______|--|_________ (Yeah isn't symmetrical...) Where can I do this or how can I do this? Thanks the help!
