Hello willson,

Thanks for joining the page and sharing this video! I think it’s a great explanation of how to set up and get started running DYNAMIXELs with ROS.

Just as a heads up, I’ve moved this thread to our Software & Programming category and I’ll include a shortcut to this thread in the original location.

I might have missed it if you mentioned in the video, but which version of ROS are you using here?

Thanks for transferring the thread to a proper one.
This is a general guideline for all ROS1 version and available for all current maintained versions : Kinetic, Melodic, and Noetic.
ROS2 example will be coming up soon :slight_smile:
