API review

Proposer: John Hsu

Present at review:

Changes

The ability to specify Joints without specifying Links.

Original URDF Proposal:

  <link name="C">
    <joint name="J" type="revolute">

      <!-- transform from link to joint frame -->
      <!-- in old URDF, this is undefined and assumed to be identity transform -->
      <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/> 

      <!-- joint properties -->
      <axis xyz="0 1 0"/>  <!--in the joint frame-->

      <parent name="P"/>  <!-- in old URDF, this is in <link> not in <joint> -->
        <!-- <origin> is the transform from Joint Frame to Parent  Link -->
        <!-- in old URDF, this is in <link> not in <joint><parent> -->
        <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/> 
      </parent>

      <joint_properties damping="1" friction="0"/>
      <limit lower="0.9" upper="2.1" effort="1000" velocity="1"/>
      <safety_controller soft_lower_limit="0.7" soft_upper_limit="2.1" k_position="1" k_velocity="1" />
      <calibration reference_position="0.7" />
    </joint>

    <inertial>
      <mass value="10"/>
      <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/>
      <inertia ixx="1" ixy="0" ixz="0" iyy="1" iyz="0" izz="1"/>
    </inertial>

    <visual>
      <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/>
      <geometry>
        <box size="1 1 1"/>
      </geometry>
      <texture name="PR2/Green"/>
    </visual>

    <collision>
      <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/>
      <geometry>
        <box size="1.01 1.01 1.01"/>
      </geometry>
      <contact_coefficient mu="0"  resitution="0"  k_p="0"  k_d="0" />
    </collision>
  </link>
