Hi Josep,

I don't think there is anything off-the-shelf that you can use;
however, both the OpenRAVE and the GraspIt! simulator have this
capability and both have ROS wrappers. It might be a little bit heavy
weight for you, and might require a bit of programming on your part.
If you want, I can send you some ideas on how to get it done using a
ROS node running inside GraspIt!


P.S. answers.ros.org is a better forum for these questions as it
allows them to be found by future users - if you are interested, can
you please post your question there and then send me a link to it?
