It also doesn't appear that the 'wideanglecamera' type is listed in the SDF options.

2015-10-21 15:35:49 -0600 commented question HAPTIX limb API crashes MATLAB

I don't know what the problem was, but it seems to be working all of a sudden. Could be a whole bunch of different things - deleted my entire MATLAB appdata folder, moved to VS2013, checked out the MATLAB license so I'm not running on a license server, reinstalled VC++ redist a few times. So I have no idea what fixed this.

Rolled back to VS2013. Not having much luck. Question about the steps in the tutorial that are unclear - am I supposed to set up an IGN_IP and IGN_PARTITION parameters on both my Windows machine and the Linux machine running Gazebo? I assumed I was supposed to do this, but the language on the tutorial page indicates that I'm only supposed to do this on the Windows machine if using that, or the local Linux machine if using that for the API.

So I should try to roll back to VS2013, and that will potentially resolve this? What does VS2013 have to do with the MATLAB MEX file? I didn't compile anything, just using the files that OSRF provided. Seems like it's less dependent on VS20xx, and more dependent on Visual C++ Redistributable, or something along those lines.

I set up the environment variable, which I know is set up because I can send commands from Motive to the Linux machine. Not sure about the firewall. But John made it sound like I needed a new MEX file.

VS2015 - whatever the current one is that you can download.

Yes, I definitely downloaded the SDK. That's how I was able to put the files in the directory I mentioned. There's nothing that needs to be 'installed', right? I just download and unzip that file and then create files in that directory? Help on that, specifically where those files should go, would be a great starting point.

I'm using R2015a, but could upgrade to 2015b if you like.

2015-10-01 13:53:52 -0600 asked a question HAPTIX C++ API won't compile in VS2015

I'm trying to follow the tutorials for the HAPTIX limb API using Visual Studio, and following the documentation doesn't work for me. I can't get the code to compile, and can't the compiler to even find the .lib files or the haptix.h file unless I copy them into the working directory.

Where am I supposed to be creating my project files in VS? Do they need to be somewhere specific relative to the HAPTIX Windows SDK? Do they need to be on the same drive? And why is linking that property sheet to the solution not able to direct the compiler to the appropriate library and header file locations?

I think the documentation may need to be checked against the 2015 build of VS.

An update: I tried putting my code in the SDK folder, one level up from the haptix-comm folder, as based on the commands I see in the property sheet that point to the $(HAPTIXSDKRoot) path. The property sheet looks like it's pretty close to pointing things in the right spot except for an additional slash, but there are a bunch of linker errors that are still trying to look in my solution path instead of in the haptix-comm path.

2015-09-30 13:11:31 -0600 asked a question HAPTIX limb API crashes MATLAB

I'm using a non-standard computer configuration - a different box running Gazebo than what was given to the performer teams, able to run Gazebo just fine, and then my laptop running MATLAB and Motive in Windows 7. I can run the C++ API from within Linux just fine, and drive the virtual limb sinusoidally as in the example. However, when I try running the MATLAB version of this from my Win7 machine, MATLAB immediately crashes. It gives some reference to the fact that this happens when MEX files are used.

I'm running Handsim 0.8.3, and Windows SDK 0.7.2. The problem, I suspect, is that the MEX file was built for different computer configurations, and I don't think I have a way to build my own version of the MEX file specific to the Windows compiler / .NET / Visual C++ Redistributable packages I have on my machine.

I should also add that the Octave scripts also work fine in Linux. So something is broken on either the Windows machine, or the means of talking to the Linux machine. I can connect Motive from my Windows box and stream that data over to the Linux box no problem, so I don't think it's the connection between the two that's the issue.

2015-09-28 14:18:41 -0600 answered a question HAPTIX / handsim motion capture axes are mixed up

Okay, never mind - I caused this problem myself by starting from a project file other than the one available for download in the Handsim tutorials. When I used the file haptix_osrf.ttp and modified to match my reflective marker positioning, it worked fine.

2015-09-28 13:40:12 -0600 asked a question HAPTIX / handsim motion capture axes are mixed up

I'm running Handsim 0.8.3 on a linux box, with a separate Windows box running Motive and connected as per the documentation. I can send mocap signals from the Optitrack to the Linux machine, but when Gazebo is running, moving my native arm up moves the virtual limb forward, and other axes are mixed up. How do I fix this?
