darwin_gazebo

ROS package providing Gazebo simulation of the Darwin OP robot. Also provides a Python interface to the joints and some walk capabilities.

These have been tested in simulation and need some work to be used on the real robot, do not use as-is.

Tutorial

A tutorial describing how to use this package can be found at:

http://www.generationrobots.com/en/content/83-carry-out-simulations-and-make-your-darwin-op-walk-with-gazebo-and-ros

Install

Clone in your catkin workspace and catkin_make it. Make sure you also have the following packages in your workspace * darwin_description: https://github.com/HumaRobotics/darwin_description * darwin_control: https://github.com/HumaRobotics/darwin_control

Usage

You can launch the simulation with:

roslaunch darwin_gazebo darwin_gazebo.launch

PRESS PLAY IN GAZEBO ONLY WHEN EVERYTHING IS LOADED (wait for controllers)

You can run a walk demo with:

rosrun darwin_gazebo walker_demo.py

ROS API

All topics are provided in the /darwin namespace.

Sensors:

/darwin/camera/image_raw

Python API

Basic usage:

import rospy
from darwin_gazebo.darwin import Darwin

rospy.init_node("walker_demo")

darwin=Darwin()
rospy.sleep(1)

darwin.set_walk_velocity(1,0,0) # Set full speed ahead for 5 secs
rospy.sleep(5)
darwin.set_walk_velocity(0,0,0) # Stop

Dependencies

The following ROS packages have to be installed: * gazebo_ros_control * hector_gazebo
