Problem witth RosInterface on Ubuntu 16.04

Postby akhil27 » 11 Jul 2017, 08:30

Hi,

I have ROS Kinetic and got the RosInterface loaded but when I try to run the scene rosInterfaceTopicPublisherAndSubscriber.ttt it lists /image and not /visionSensorData so the command given in the tutorial "rosrun image_view image_view image:=/visionSensorData" doesn't work. Also when I run the scene controlTypeExamples.ttt the red robot doesn't move at all. I can't seem to understand why this is happening. I am new to ROS and v-rep so really need some help.

Thanks in advance,
Akhil

Hello Akhil,

are you sure the RosInterface is loaded? (check the terminal window)
Also, are there any error messages in the lower part of the V-REP window when running those scenes?

Cheers

I am not getting any error message for those scenes.

This is what I get when I start vrep

I also tried installing the new beta version of v-rep I saw you suggested on another post and then using the ros packages in v-rep folder to compile the RosInterface. I get warnings but it builds and still gives me a non-moving red bot (https://ibb.co/c2Ngua).

The catkin build gives me

If you look at the child script attached to the red robot, you will see that it tries to launch rosBubbleRob2, which is an executable which should be located in the same folder as v_rep.sh. Do you have that executable? And is it launched?

Cheers

There is an executable called rosBubbleRob2 in the V-Rep root folder with vrep.sh. I saw that this error message comes up in the terminal when I run the scene, sorry for not noticing that earlier:
./rosBubbleRob2: symbol lookup error: ./rosBubbleRob2: undefined symbol: _ZN3ros4initERiPPcRKSsj

What could be going wrong? Also, is it okay to ignore the warnings I got with catkin build I posted previously?

Did you recompile that executable? If not, try to recompile it and see if it runs.

Probably you haven't installed ROS properly, otherwise you shouldn't have all those warning messages (except for the first message I guess).

Cheers

I recompiled it and it works now. Will reinstall ros and try to get rid of the warnings. Sorry for the trouble.

Thanks
