Hi everyone,

I'm trying to simulate youBot in Gazebo (version 1.9.5) with ROS Hydro. After launching the youbot-arm-only.launch (see github) I can see the youBot in Gazebo (the robot is loaded without errors) . But if I try to send topics to move one arm, e.g. by ...

$rostopic pub -r 10 /arm1/armcontroller/positioncommand bricsactuator/JointPositions '{positions:[{jointuri: armjoint_1, unit: rad, value: 200}]}'

...it looks like the robot doesn't move, or just very very slowly...

What am I doing wrong?

Best wishes, Lena
