    Whenever I run “roslaunch jaco_driver jaco_arm_launch” I get the following error –

    [ INFO] [1438286522.917873264]: Initializing Kinova API (header version: 50101, library version: 5.0.6)
    [ERROR] [1438286523.031603216]: JacoCommException: Could not get general information about the device (return code: 2005)

    The arm was working properly before this, so I am unsure what exactly went wrong. This happened once before and it automatically worked after a few days and the error is popping up again. How do I resolve this?

    Hi sjuneja,

    My name is Hugo and I work at Kinova. I will help you to solve your issue. I have a few questions:

    – Could you tell me the firmware code of your robot?
    – Also, could you tell me if you are using a USB 3 or USB 2 port?

    Thank you,

    Hugo

THE NEW NORMAL: UPROOTING ASSISTIVE NORMS in 2018

A new year is a time for new beginnings and starting things afresh. In the spirit of making a change, there’s a specific paradigm that needs to be addressed, or, as many in the industry would say, “disrupted.” Consider 2018 the year of “The New Normal” for the Assistive market. The New Normal is a term coined by our colleague, Abe Clark, in the United States.

STEERING TOWARDS CO-CREATION, COLLABORATION, AND INNOVATION – #KINOVAONTHEROAD in 2018

My objective at Kinova is to build bridges between people, businesses, educational organizations, and governments to effectively fuel the cycle of innovation. Unsurprisingly, that means hopping on a plane and going to find the best people in the world to exchange with.
