2014-02-24 19:56:12 -0500 asked a question Making a model slippery

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could make a model slippery? I want the option to make a graspable object's surface slippery so a robot would have more trouble picking it up. So far I haven't been able to figure out a way to do this.

I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for the best arm to use in Gazebo 1.9 with Ros Hydro on a mobile robot that will be performing object manipulation.

By best I mean an arm that I can just add to my robot's urdf.xacro and give me the option of using off-the-shelf packages like Moveit! to manipulate objects with little to no extra configuration. I've been playing around with the Shadow arm but it kind of seems like overkill.

I'm really just looking for something that will give me functionality similar to what the PR2 arm and gripper provided with the object_manipulation stack in ros groovy.

Thanks in advance!

I've been trying to vain to spawn and control a PR2 in Gazebo 1.9. I've tried Hydro and and Groovy but have had the most success with Groovy. I'm following these instructions to spawn a PR2 from xacro: http://gazebosim.org/wiki/Tutorials/1.9/UsingroslaunchFilestoSpawnModels#UsingroslaunchtoSpawnURDFRobots.

Among the many errors I am recieving is this one: Error [CameraPlugin.cc:46] CameraPlugin requires a CameraSensor. Msg It is a depth camera sensor

Anyone have this working or have an idea when a working version will be available?

Thanks in advance
