ArbotiX Follow Joint Trajectory Controller

This module is part of the arbotix_python package.

Module Overview

The follow_controller enables control of several servos using a control_msgs/FollowJointTrajectryAction interface. This is the action-based interface that arm_navigation requires.


~controllers/<name>/rate (int, default: 50.0) ~controllers/<name>/joints (list of strings) ~controllers/<name>/index (int) ~controllers/<name>/onboard (bool, default: True) ~controllers/<name>/action_name (string, default: follow_joint_trajectory.)

YAML Configuration

ArbotiX-ROS based robots are typically configured through a YAML configuration file. A typical configuration file that includes a follow controller might be:

port: /dev/ttyUSB0
dynamixels: {
    pan_joint: {id: 1},
    lift_joint: {id: 2}
controllers: {
    arm_controller: {type: follow_controller, joints: [pan_joint, lift_joint] },
