Re: Install ROS Kinetic VREP inteface

That guide is outdated.

You only need to install xsltproc package (with apt-get), then clone the v_repExtRosInterface.git repository with the --recursive option, and follow the instructions in the README.

Re: V-REP not workin with ROS Kinetic

By the way, the version of V-REP you are using is quite old.

Current version is 3.5.0 and you should probably upgrade, otherwise you will not be able to use latest version of the plugins from git repositories.

Re: V-REP not workin with ROS Kinetic

Please give us more information:
  • which machine hardware is that? macbook?
  • which operating system do you have? which version?
  • I see that "vrep" binary is not executable. try running

    Code: Select all

    chmod +x vrep
    and start vrep.sh again.

Re: Send data from matlab to vrep

you can use simxGetStringSignal/simxSetStringSignal/simxClearStringSignal, or simxReadStringStream /simxWriteStringStream, using simxPackFloats/simxUnpackFloats to write/read an array of floats to/from a string. Alternatively, you can use simxCallScriptFunction in a similar fashion. http://www.coppe...

Re: How to publish diagnostic data of my robot hardware

It's not possible with the old ROS plugin.

Use the new RosInterface plugin.

You have to manually create a publisher with simROS.advertise, and publish the data with simROS.publish.

Have a look at the rosInterfaceTopicPublisherAndSubscriber.ttt scene, and the ROS tutorial.
