Cannot load information on name: pr2_robot, distro: jade, which means that it is not yet in our index. Please see this page for information on how to submit your repository to our index.

The user's interface to the pr2_robot stack is pr2_bringup, which provides launch files that can be used to bring up a robot. The other packages in this stack are used during the bringup process, and are not usually accessed directly by users.

Running the PR2

Starting up the robot is not any different from launching a normal ROS program. You first set your ROS environment, and then launch the robot.launch file that corresponds to the distribution you are using:

  •  source /opt/ros/DISTRO/setup.bash
     roslaunch /etc/ros/DISTRO/robot.launch

With DISTRO replaced by 'boxturtle', 'cturtle' or 'diamondback'.
