Hi, I'm knew to ROS and Gazebo. I'm trying to get familiar to the Gazebo and ROS with the DRC Environment. Therefore, I was trying the Tutorial in .

I can compile and build the Tutorial properly. Even, if I echo the published joint commands, I see the proper values that have been set. But the received JointStates don't change. I always get the same values for the position. As I don't have an nvidia Graphics Chip, I'm using the atlas_cpu_lidar.launch Launch-Files. Gazebo and RVIZ, both don't show any changes from the initial state of Atlas.

But somehow, if I try to teleoperate Atlas with "roslaunch atlas_utils keyboard_teleop.launch" I can make Atlas move.

Thank You

Try using AtlasCommand message instead. I had the same problem when the controller was updated. Plus you should check this tutorial because the Atlas needs to be in user mode to be controlled.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for your answer. Somehow, the AtlasCommand Message works. Maybe it's because of the k_effort parameter that can be set to 255.
