Parameters

Calibration

The calibration file is loaded from the sr_control_gui/param/cyberglove.cal file. To change which file you want to use, you can simply edit the parameter path_to_calibration of the cyberglove.launch file.

<node pkg="cyberglove" name="cyberglove" type="cyberglove">
    <param name="cyberglove_prefix" type="string" value="/cyberglove" />
    <param name="publish_frequency" type="double" value="20.0" />
    <param name="path_to_glove" type="string" value="/dev/ttyS0" />
    <param name="path_to_calibration" type="string" value="$(find
    sr_control_gui)/param/cyberglove.cal" />
</node>

A calibration process is available in the cyberglove calibrator plugin of the sr_control_gui.

Which Versions of the Cyberglove have been tested

The standard Cyberglove connected to the serial port has been tested, as well as the bluetooth version of the cyberglove. To use the bluetooth version, you need to pair it with your computer. A good howto is available on the Gentoo wiki.
