The robotino_description package contains xacro files and meshes required to create a urdf model of Robotino. This urdf file is used by the robot_state_publisher package to broadcast transforms and also by rviz for visualization.


Generating/Updating a urdf file

If the xacro files are modified, then the robotino.urdf would have to updated as well. This can be done by running the following command from the robotino_description/urdf directory.

rosrun xacro robotino.urdf.xacro > robotino.urdf
