For this question I am using the code sample provided at the documentation:
<transmission type="SimpleTransmission" name="caster_front_left_trans"> <actuator name="caster_front_left_motor" /> <joint name="caster_front_left_joint" /> <mechanicalReduction>1</mechanicalReduction> </transmission>
I understand for the most part what most of the names refer to, but I am still puzzled as to what exactly the function of the actuator name is. I did my best to grep through the shipped packages, but with no luck. Does the name reference something external to the robot model? What does it reference?
I suppose I should note I was looking at the PR2's URDF description and grepping for its actuator name(s).
Thanks for any help!
