RTDE actual_TCP_velocity

Hi all,

I’m using the ros driver to control a UR10e and would like to monitor the velocity of the end effector. I saw that there is actual_TCP_speed as part of the RTDE output but could not find the equivalent from the driver’s published topics. Is there a message being published that provides this information?

Hi,

please see https://github.com/UniversalRobots/Universal_Robots_ROS_Driver/issues/62 that already covers that.

Also, see https://github.com/UniversalRobots/Universal_Robots_ROS_Driver/pull/35 which aims at making all RTDE fields easily available to ROS topics.
