Using Simulated Tactile Sensors

Description: Learn how to use the two different simulated tactile sensors: the dummy tactile sensors, and the simulated tactile sensors in the Gazebo simulator.

Tutorial Level: BEGINNER

Next Tutorial: See how you can access the data being published in the next tutorial: Getting Data


Just run

$ rosmake sr_tactile_sensors

Dummy Sensors

To start the dummy sensors, run:

$ roslaunch sr_tactile_sensors sr_tactile_virtual.launch


We assume you've followed this tutorial and know how to start the Hand interface for Gazebo.

To start the simulated sensors, run:

$ roslaunch sr_tactile_sensors sr_tactile_gazebo.launch

This will get the data published by the Gazebo tactile sensors and format it for you to have the same interface for the 3 different sensor modes.
