Hi Everyone,

We're pleased to announce a new package for the Barrett Hand BH8-28X

This package allows the control of the hand either in velocity or position,
and reading the current state of the joints and the sensors (fingertip
torque and tactile sensors).

The software includes packages with the model description and a graphical
interface (rqt) to interact with the hand.

Groovy and Hydro are currently supported, Indigo soon.

If you are interested in verifying all these features of the hand, you can
visit us from 14th until 18th of September in booth nº303 at IROS 2014.

Best regards,
