Run the door opening code in simulation
Run the door opening code on the PR2
The door opening code was developed for and tested on doors inside Willow Garage. It's unlikely that it will just work on any other type of doors (most likely the door handle detection code will fail to find the correct location of the door handle). To run door opening in Willow Garage:
- Joystick your robot in front of a door, with the door handle on the right side, in a way that the door opens away from the robot
Bring up the web interface to the robot http::prx:9090
- Start the PR2_base app
- Start the Door opening app
