    Re: PhantomX Pincher Arm - now supported with ROS Robot Operating System

    I am setting a arm up on my Turtlebot 2 it's on a Hydro distro as all its tools work forward and backward, i belive in Indigo you must use catkin and no going backward. My point is the Turttlebot_arm packages seem to have skipped over the HYDRO development. I am hoping all goes okay fine.

    I've tested both packages on Indigo, but I believe they also work on Hydro, so you should be fine. If you have any problems, post an issue on the Github location. It would be great if you could keep notes on adding the arm to Turtlebot and post your findings! One issue I haven't seen addressed is where the best place to put the Kinect is so that it can be used both for navigation and also for object detection/manipulation with an arm.

    Where is the most up-to-date version of the Pincher support ? I can see very similar content at
    https://github.com/corot/turtlebot_a.../kinetic-devel
    and
    https://github.com/turtlebot/turtlebot_arm
    and I'm not sure which one to start from.

    Thanks!
    Richard
