Visualize Baxter with rviz


Use rviz to visualize Baxter's joints and sensor data.



rviz is a 3D visualizer for displaying sensor data and state information from ROS. With rviz, you can visualize Baxter's current pose on a virtual model of the robot. You can also display live representations of sensor values coming over ROS Topics.


Start rviz from an RSDK terminal session using:

   $ rosrun rviz rviz &

Use a 'Fixed Frame' of /world, and Add a Robot Model Display Type. Reference the list below (Baxter Display Types) for more sensors.
