Sensor Indexing

Each board has a dedicated address, and as such each sensor has a dedicated address.
Connecting boards with same address will result in an conflict.

Board Name Sensors Available
Finger board 0 [0,1,2,3]
Finger board 1 [5,6,7,8]
Finger board 2 [10,11,12,13]

To check which sensors are active subscribe to the sensor_info topic under ROS

rostopic echo /takktile_ros/sensor_info

To plot raw sensor values enter

rxplot /takktile_ros/raw/pressure[0]:pressure[1]:pressure[2]:pressure[3]:pressure[4]

note that rxplot takes data location indexes (…2,3,4,5,6…), not sensor_info indices (…2,3,5,6,7…)

To zero thermal drift
