I am able to control all Atlas joints following tutorials, but the joints names are not always a good enough description to realize which one is which. Is there any document that describes which joints corresponds to which joint name?

Best regards,

The best option is probably to run

roscd atlas
roslaunch urdf_tutorial display.launch model:=atlas.urdf gui:=True

and then play with the sliders to figure out which joint corresponds to which name.

Hello, where can i find that tutorial? Using these commands all i get is: [urdf_tutorial] is not a package or launch file name

"sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-robot-model-tutorials" ... should get you the package
