The AAAI LfD Demo depends on several PR2 packages. Please install the PR2 Desktop developer stacks, including PR2 simulator:
sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-pr2-desktop
or refer to the instruction on Robots/PR2/diamondback.
Installation from source code
The following rosinstall file will get everything for you:
- svn: local-name: aaai_lfd_demo uri: 'https://bosch-ros-pkg.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bosch-ros-pkg/trunk/stacks/aaai_lfd_demo' - svn: local-name: simple_robot_control uri: 'https://bosch-ros-pkg.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bosch-ros-pkg/branches/diamondback/stacks/bosch_manipulation_utils/simple_robot_control' - svn: local-name: SnapMapICP uri: 'https://svn.code.sf.net/p/tum-ros-pkg/code/highlevel/SnapMapICP' - svn: local-name: ias_nav uri: 'https://svn.code.sf.net/p/tum-ros-pkg/code/stacks/ias_nav' - git: local-name: ias_common uri: 'http://code.in.tum.de/git/ias-common.git'
Note: To use the rosinstall file, create a new directory (e.g. aaai), create a file named .rosinstall in this folder and paste the above text into it, go to the directory in a terminal and type
rosinstall . /opt/ros/diamondback source ./setup.sh rosmake aaai_lfd_demo
Please refer to the rosinstall page for more details.
Use the demo in simulation
To use the AAAI LfD Demo in simulation with the simulator Gazebo, you need to follow these steps:
Make sure that the environment variable ROBOT is set to "sim" (ROBOT=sim).
Launch the simulation world by typing in a new terminal:
roslaunch aaai_lfd_simulator simulation_world.launch
Launch the necessary nodes by typing in a new terminal:
roslaunch aaai_lfd_demo_launch aaai_lfd_simulation.launch
Now you have to wait untill the torso of the PR2 is up in the highest position. This is done when a message like "[simple_torso-1] process has finished cleanly." appears in the terminal.
Run the openloop_object_manipulation node by typing in a new terminal:
rosrun openloop_object_manipulation manipulation_node.py
Finally start the demo by typing in a new terminal:
roslaunch aaai_lfd_demo_launch aaai_lfd_executive.launch
