Bring up the robot

As with all applications, you must first bring up your robot.

Launching

Boxturtle

The tuck arm application is a Python script, tuckarms.py:

USAGE: tuck_arms.py [b | l | r] 

For example, to tuck both arms:

rosrun pr2_tuckarm tuck_arms.py b

C-turtle or newer versions

The tuck arm application is a Python script, tuck_arms.py:

USAGE: tuck_arms.py [-r <action>] [-l <action>]; <action> is '(t)uck' or '(u)ntuck'.

For example, to tuck both arms:

rosrun pr2_tuckarm tuck_arms.py -r t -l t

or to untuck the right arm only:

rosrun pr2_tuckarm tuck_arms.py --right untuck 

If this runs properly, you will see the PR2 tuck each of its arms in turn and see something like the following feedback in the terminal:

  • Waiting for controller manager to start
  • Tucking both left and right arm
