Overview

This controller for the Barrett Hand is a python node based on the original library pyHand. By using this controller it will be able to set the position or velocity of the motorized joints of the hand and read from all of its sensors (fingertip torque and tactile sensors, temperature) and joint positions.

Configuration

launch file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<launch>
 
  <node pkg="bhand_controller" type="bhand_node.py" name="bhand_node" output="screen">

  • topic_state: Name of the topic to publish the state.
  • port: can device connected to the hand.
  • tactile_sensors: Flag to set if the tactile sensors are available and want to be published.
