[Discourse.ros.org] [ROS Projects] Jog_control: Jogging package for robot arms

Thilo Zimmermann via ros-users


Hi,

We are now working on `jog_control`, which provides jog control for research and industrial manipulators.

https://github.com/tork-a/jog_control

ROS oriented robot arms sometimes suffer from the lack of the teaching system, which is usually provided by industrial manipulators. Yes, we have MoveIt! and Rviz plug-in, but we know it is quite difficult to specify target hand position and posture by the GUIs while we have to observe the robot is moving in real workspace. We preferably need teaching pendants or joypads to jog the robot. This package is aiming to provide joint jogging, frame jogging, joypad and teaching pendant control.

![Default%20Project|690x460](upload://k9ZedoSspSrZG6qvxGTUSJplkxS.gif)

Please refer the repository and [our blog post](http://opensource-robotics.tokyo.jp/?page_id=2725&lang=en) for further information. We are very appreciated if we can get feedback from various robot users to improve this package.

Thanks,

Looks interesting. There is also the [jog_arm](http://wiki.ros.org/jog_arm) package which provides cartesian jogging functionality for robot arms.

Thanks,
Yes, we noticed jog_arm before starting our project. I believe jog_arm and jog_control are not interchangeable and competitive because the purpose and implementation are different. We want to jog the robot cartesian space precisely, as almost industrial manipulators do.
