Repository Clone


Additional Requirements

Connection with PC

First step is to make sure that the Sensor glove is connected to the USB0 and Robot Hand is connected to USB1. If this is not in order, we might have to change it inside the files and aslo in rosserial_python library. 

Connecting with ROS

  • Initiate Roscore with command: roscore
  • Run the Rosserial Python command to initiate the Serial connection between with the hand through Python:

          rosrun rosserial_python tcp

           You will see something like this:

  • After this, run the Arduino file to initiate the calibration. If the Serial connection is finished, you will see something like this:

Connecting with the Robot Hand

In order to connect with the hand, just run this file:

roslaunch rh8d start_rh8d.launch

How to use our FRANKA EMIKA Panda

Franka World Account


Franka Emika Webinterface

To connect to the web interface, use the robot PC. Open the browser and visit the website: or via IP . The access data for the web interface are as follows:

Account name: CPSFranka
PW: bs6m6BYftuQjd8p

Getting started with the Guiding Mode

Before you start with the guiding mode you should get to know the status colors of the Franka Panda. You can find them in the picture below. In case of difficulties, the user manual on page 137 provides you with initial assistance.

In guiding mode, motion of the arm follows the corresponding guiding configuartion, which is displayed in the sidebar. The guiding configuration can be changed by pressing the guiding mode button on top of the grip. You can also select the guiding mode in the web interface.

Teaching the Robot to Pass Through a Sequence of States

You can register a sequence of robot configurations as target states. These points can be autonomously approached, one after another. 

Activating the Mode 'Guide Task'

To set up a guide task, press the “+” button next to the tasks in the lower left part of the web interface. Next, you can add either a Cart Motion App or a Joint Motion App. After you have set up the task, you can begin the guidance process.

To start the guidance program, unlock the robot’s joints in the web interface and check that the two switches are off (on the right of the window). Next, open the first app of your task. Now you need to go to the robot and press the two buttons at the end of the end effector. Then move the robot arm to the first control point and press the “o” button on the control panel, repeat this process until you have completed your guidance program. Finally, press the green check button. Now you only have to enter the maximum speed and acceleration for your task and you are done with the first app. Use the same procedure for all apps. You can then return to the computer and start your program after unlocking the safety switch.

ATTENTION: Do not be in the robot’s danger zone at any time while your guidance program is running!
