Sawyer not connecting to ROS

Recommended Posts

I followed the steps on networking from the intera website and tried to run the examples. But when I tried to, the message of "unable to communicate with master" always appeared. The intera.sh file has been correctly updated and don't know what other approach to take. Any extra packages that need to be downloaded / steps to take other than the ones described in the website?

Good morning,
I have the same problem,
Have you found any solutions at the moment?

I ran the ifconfig command to check what was the actual name of the ethernet connection (as it was different from eth0). With the correct name, I ran the sudo avahi-autoipd [eth name] on a separate terminal window and left it running on the background. After this, I completed the "Hello Robot" tutorial without a problem.

Hello, jorgegalds_DON, Conti Michele,  Enrico Mattei,

Sorry for late reply in here,

If you are running Intera software, please check out https://rethinkrobotics.interaforum.com/forum/3-using-intera/ for more information. 

For SDK, please try to ping your robot from your workstation, make sure ping is working. Also, you can try to set up a static IP on the robot in robot FSM when you use robot hostname in intera.sh.

Hope this helps.

@Conti Michele:  Your screen shows that your are running Intera Studio, which indicates that the robot is booted up into the manufacturing mode, not the SDK mode.  You need to power down the robot, then boot into the field service Menu (FSM) http://sdk.rethinkrobotics.com/intera/Field_Service_Menu_(FSM)

From the FSM, you need to select SDK, then reboot again.  When the robot boots up, you will just see the Rethink logo on the head screen.  This is how you know you are in the SDK.
