Support for Actionlib in RosInterface Plugin?

First of all, thanks for the nice RosInterface plugin that makes it easy to connect V-REP and ROS. I was wondering if you have any plan to support actionlib (http://wiki.ros.org/actionlib) in the RosInterface plugin. Actionlib is another common way of communication in ROS, especially for complex sys...

Re: ROS plugin doesn't quit in headless mode

Thanks for the information. In the meantime I tried the following bash commands to unload the ROS plugin node from the master and kill the process, but maybe I need a fancier way to do that. $ kill -2 $(pgrep vrep); sleep 1; kill -15 $(pgrep vrep); By the way, the new ROS plugin looks good! Thank yo...

ROS plugin doesn't quit in headless mode

Hello, I am using the ROS plugin for v.3.3.0 in headless mode on a linux machine, and it is running well. However, when I try to terminate V-REP by hitting CTRL+C, V-REP stops responding and never quit. So, I need to kill the process manually. I looked into the code a bit, and it seems that v_repEnd...

How to get rid of orphan edges in mesh?

Hello, I am trying to simulate peg-in-hole manipulation task and have some problems with mesh models. I've created a cylinder with a hole by setting negative volume that is supported by Vortex. But it did not robustly respond to a peg which was a primitive cylinder model, especially when peg pushes ...

Missing simRosGetCollectionHandle.srv in CMakeLists.txt

Hello,

I tried to recompile libv_repExtRos.so from v.3.2.3 rev4 source files, and found that simRosGetCollectionHandle.srv was missed in ros_packages/vrep_common/CMakeLists.txt.
Other than that, everything was built successfully.

Thanks :)

Re: Setting frame_id for simros_strmcmd_get_object_pose?

For the moment, I see that a little hack to vrep_plugin/src/ROS_server.cpp can be a workaround, by adding the following at line 1315:

Code: Select all

    fl.header.frame_id=publishers[pubI].auxStr;

Setting frame_id for simros_strmcmd_get_object_pose?

Hello, I am trying to make V-REP to publish geometry_msgs::PoseStamped message and visualize it in RViz. The problem is that this message doesn't specify its header.frame_id, so RViz cannot transform and display it. More specifically, I am using simRosEnablePublisher service from the ROS node side w...

API for precise dynamics engine properties?

Hello, Is there any way to programmatically adjust dynamics engine parameters, such as vortex time step, instead of using GUI dialog? I wish to work with ROS and run multiple simulations with different fidelity setup. I have tried to change the values of sim_floatparam_simulation_time_step and sim_i...
