Driver package for an Otto Bock SensorHand Speed prosthetics device.

The hand_node establishes an RS232 connection with an Otto Bock SensorHand Speed prosthetics device and allows to issue gripping commands and receive feedback.


Launch Files

  • hand_launch.launch - Launches the driver node.

Test Connection to the Hand

After configuring the parameters in the launch file and connecting the hand device to the computer, the node can be tested by invoking

roslaunch sensorhand_speed hand_launch.launch

Now gripping commands can be issued by calling the node's service, e.g. for opening the hand with 50% of the maximum velocity and force

rosservice call /hand_node/hand_srv 2 0.5
