Hello everyone, So I wanted to basically join the functions of the scripts joint_position_joystick.py and go_to_cartesian_pose.py I want to teleoperate the robot using a cartesian coordinate system and not joint by joint. I don't know if anyone has had previous experience developing such a controller but all tips and suggestions are greatly appreciated. At the moment my question is: can one use the rospy.init_node() for 2 different nodes in the same python script? As each file has a node to make them work (one with the joystick capabilities and the other establishing the cartesian coordinate system) Thanks in before hand. Sincerely, Jorge
Hello everyone, So I was trying to test the Gripper Joystick Controller found at the Intera Examples. I have a PS3 controller and have successfully paired it to my ROS using the ps3/Joy tutorial. But when I follow the Intera tutorial on how to run the program, I am always facing the error "IndexError: tuple index out of range". I know it is not the same nut I tried the Gripper Keyboard example and that one worked perfectly on my Sawyer. If someone has experience running this example I would greatly appreciate the advice. I might also text it using an Xbox 360 controller but I think it should be working as it is because the connection is stable with the PS3 one. Thanks in advance for any advice. -Jorge
