Re: How to implement cloud computing?

what kind of data do you want to store?

Anyway, with a C++ plugin you can do whatever your mind can come up with.
Make a plugin which exposes one or more Lua functions so that it can be used by scripts and addons.

Re: Headless mode

What do you mean with "won't work"?

The log you posted shows Initialization successful which suggests everything should be working fine.

Re: Jaco robotic arm - matlab

Before beginning your algorithmic work in MATLAB, try to get everything working in V-REP. If you are familiar with ROS, the Jaco has drivers for ROS , and you can use the ROS Interface plugin of V-REP to interface with it. Otherwise you have to write a C++ plugin to interface with the Jaco SDK, whic...

Re: Setting of joint limits for motion planning

So this is about setting your "zero" configuration (i.e. q=(0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)) to match your desired pose. This is all about setting joint offsets, and has nothing to do with OMPL or the OMPL plugin. There is no such thing as joint offset in V-REP, but you can simply rotate the joint around its own ...

Re: Setting of joint limits for motion planning

The arguments you give to simExtOMPL_createStateSpace appear incorrect. After the bounds you should have a boolean indicating if that state space component is used for cumputing a projection of the state. This is not the cause of your issue however. In order to set the starting position, you should ...

Re: Motor Joint Model

Ensure that the joint is in torque/force mode and everything is dynamically enabled.

Are you using the joint's motor? Is the control loop enabled?

Re: Model parameters

You can compute the total mass in a script, using simGetObjectsInTree with sim_object_shape_type in a loop to get all the shapes in your model, and simGetShapeMassAndInertia to get the mass of each one.
