def talker():
    The Publisher publishes to the different topics on which the sr_subscriber subscribes. It sends commands to 
    the hand.
    Please set the message you want to test.
    test_what = "sendupdate" # choose sendupdate or contrlr
    Test the sendupdate command
    if test_what == "sendupdate":
        pub1 = rospy.Publisher('srh/sendupdate', sendupdate)

        new_target = 0
        data_to_send = [ joint(joint_name="FFJ0", joint_target=new_target),
                         joint(joint_name="FFJ3", joint_target=new_target) ]
        pub1.publish(sendupdate(len(data_to_send), data_to_send))
    Tests the contrlr command
    if test_what == "contrlr":
        pub2 = rospy.Publisher('contrlr', contrlr)
        data_to_send = ["p:0","i:0"]
        pub2.publish( contrlr( contrlr_name="smart_motor_ff2" ,
