How to launch UR5 in Gazebo?


I have downloaded the universal robot package from into the catkin_ws/src in my rosject. I am trying to launch the ur5 robot in Gazebo with roslaunch ur_gazebo ur5.launch. The ur5 doesn’t show up in the simulation and this is the error that I am getting. It says that I have another simulation running but I don’t.

First, you need to launch a rosject with the same distribution of the branch you are cloning. Check with git status and make sure you are using the same distributions.

Then the error, the fact that it says gazebo-2 tells me you have another gazebo node running. You can kill everything with rosnode kill -a and try launching it again
