This package holds the urdf description of the robot.

In the urdf folder you have the URDF files that contain the description of the robot, divided in different modules and merged into andino.urdf.xacro file.


In case you want to change the physical properties of some of the components of the robot, you can do it modifying the default YAML files inside the config/andino folder.

You can even add your own configuration files in another directory in the config folder, and pass this directory to the main file using the yaml_config_dir xacro argument on the launch files.
