Connect to the KINOVA Gen3 Robot and Initiate Required ROS Nodes to Control the Robot
Open the terminal from the catkin workspace containing
ROS packages in the host computer or VM where ROS is installed. Execute the following
command in the terminal to launch required ROS nodes. Also, replace the IP address of
the robot and gripper based on the actual hardware setup. For more information on the
roslaunch command, see GitHub page of KINOVA Robotics.
roslaunch kortex_driver kortex_driver.launch ip_address:=192.168.0.106
If the hardware setup and the IP address are correct, a message 'The Kortex driver has been initialized correctly!' displays on the terminal window.
