Developmental

DEVELOPMENTAL: This status indicates that this software is not yet production ready code. The software has some level of unit-testing. There are known issues and missing functionality. The APIs are unstable but unlikely to change drastically. Use in production systems will likely require modifications including improvements and/or bug fixes. For more information see the ROS-Industrial software status page.

Overview

This stack is part of the ROS-Industrial program. This stack can be used to control Robotiq 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Grippers, 3-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper and Force Torque Sensor. Only grippers configured with the Modbus TCP or Modbus RTU protocol can be controlled using the stack. Robotiq Wrist Camera is currently not supported.

Installation

The Robotiq package is only available from source. It can be cloned using the following command:

git clone https://github.com/ros-industrial/robotiq.git

Once cloned, checkout the branch for your specific ROS version (e.g. kinetic-devel) The robotiq package has the following library dependencies:

  • The EtherCAT soem library is also required to build the Robotiq package. It must also be cloned into the same workspace as the Robotiq package

    git clone https://github.com/ros-industrial/ethercat-soem.git

  • The EtherCAT soem library is also required to build the Robotiq package. It can be downloaded from debs by

    sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-soem

  • The EtherCAT soem library is also required to build the Robotiq package. It can be downloaded from debs by

    sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-soem

Note that Robotiq devices that use the USB serial port will appear as /dev/ttyUSBn devices in your system (where "n" is a number that depends on the number of USB devices that are plugged in the computer) and require read and write permissions to work properly. One way to permanently ensure you have such permissions is simply to add your user to the dialout group once:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER
