this is my first time posting and I wanted to tell that I have separated the Gazebo Conveyor Belt from OSRF ARIAC package into it’s own plugin, it’s still a work in progress, since it is my first dapple into C++ code and working on plugins.
You can find the source in github.
If the OSRF makes a “official” package, then I will mark this as a deprecated plugin and point into the better one.
I made some modifications and now you can change the maximum velocity of the belt. It also “respawns” back at starting point, when it has moved 40% of the upper limit specified in the joint.
