Motion Planning Dialog / Plugin

Hi all,
I didn't find any documentation about the Motion Planning Plugin and relative dialog.
What about its functionalities?

Does it exists some non-official documentation?

The api function simPackFloats(), in this context, seems not working, I obtain this error: /opt/ros/hydro/share/vrep/vrep_plugin/src/vrepSubscriber.cpp:528:50: error: ‘si...

Re: How to Implement a new ROS topic type?

Thanks for the quick reply. I have a doubt: As far as I understand, adding a sensor_msgs/joy type in vrep should mean adding a new subscriber, not a publisher. So I should add to the simulator a constant like "simros_strmcmd_SET_joy_sensor" in order to subscribe to an external topic and READ from th...

How to Implement a new ROS topic type?

Hi developers,
I'd like to add the "sensor_msgs/joy" topic type to the ROS plugin in order to use the "joy" stack with V-REP/ROS.
Can you suggest me which part of the code I must modify?

Regards

Re: Kinect and ROS

My question is simpler. :D
I'm new of ROS. How can I read a depth image streamed by the vrep model of kinect in ROS?
Which stack could be useful to this purpose?
