Package Summary

This package contains a device-independent hardware interface for qbrobotics® devices.

This package is barely usable alone since it provides only the common features to be exploited and expanded in the derived packages (cf. qb_hand and qb_move).


This device-independent library provides all the common structures to interface both the qb_hand and the qb_move ROS packages with their related physical devices. It exploits the Communication Handler (cf. qb_device_driver) to manage the serial communication and inherits its core from the hardware_interface for the sake of compatibility with other robots which use ROS. This package paves the way for control applications (cf. qb_device_control).
