Is there documentation that describes the joystick control (aside from reading joystick_interface.py?)Edouard RenardKeymasterSeptember 26, 2018 at 4:45 pmPost count: 71
For now there is no specific documentation for the joystick control (aside the code itself).
Some hints that may help you: for the joystick we use the ROS joy package which is a driver package to convert the joystick input into a well formatted ROS message. The node is started inside this ROS launch file.
As I speak the joystick control only works for Xbox controllers, and to control each joint separately. We might work on that in the future to also make the robot compatible with a Playstation controller, and (not sure yet) add a mode to control the end effector position instead of just the firstname.lastname@example.orgParticipantOctober 2, 2018 at 5:54 pmPost count: 2
Do you connect the Xbox controller via USB or Bluetooth?
Is there any setup docu?Edouard RenardKeymasterOctober 3, 2018 at 2:52 pmPost count: 71
For now you have to connect the Xbox controller via USB.
There is no documentation for the joystick control, but as you will see it’s very easy. In Niryo One Studio, in the “settings” tab, you have a “enable joystick” checkbox.
Plug your controller, check this box, disable learning mode, and start moving the arm 🙂BManCanParticipantOctober 14, 2018 at 5:32 pmPost count: 4
Which XBox controllers are compatible with the Niryo One (Xbox 360 or Xbox One)?
Is it possible to use a USB Logitech game pad?
Thanks.FindingNiryoParticipantOctober 15, 2018 at 3:12 pmPost count: 26Edouard RenardKeymasterOctober 15, 2018 at 5:10 pmPost count: 71
We have tested with Xbox360 controller, not with other kind of controller yet.
If anyone has a different kind of joystick at home, please share your result here, thanks ! 🙂email@example.comParticipantOctober 16, 2018 at 10:11 pmPost count: 2
I’ve an XBox one Elite controller which does not work, but I need to do some further tests. With “lsusb” I can see that the system detects a Microsoft device. I’ll need to install a test program to see what signals are being received, but I like to enable bluetooth first and connect the device via BT.
