WARNING : This instruction does not use ROS to operate OpenMANIPULATOR-X.
The way OpenMANIPULATOR-X is controlled by OpenCR (embedded system) and ROS is completely different.
When operating with ROS, the PC becomes a main controller.
On the other hands, when operating with OpenCR, the OpenCR becomes a main controller.
OpenMANIPULATOR-X is compatible with OpenCR. We offer API to easily control manipulator. This API supports Dynamixel, Dynamixel X including protocol 1.0 and 2.0. Furthermore, this code can be used for Friends of OpenMANIPULATOR. User can make thier code in Arduino IDE and simulate or control using Processing GUI.
Connect micro USB (connected to PC), Dynamixel(OpenMANIPULATOR), and 12V Power to OpenCR as shown below.
NOTE : Please refer the detailed description of OpenCR.
