This is a simple subscriber example, subscribing to the srh/shadowhand_data topic

import roslib; roslib.load_manifest('sr_hand')
import rospy
from sr_robot_msgs.msg import joints_data, joint

def callback(joint_data):
    The callback function for the topic srh/shadowhand_Data. It just displays the received information on the console.
    @param joint_data: the message containing the joint data.
    for joint in joint_data.joints_list:
        rospy.loginfo(rospy.get_name()+"[%s] : Pos = %f | Target = %f | Temp = %f | Current = %f",
                      joint.joint_name, joint.joint_position, joint.joint_target, joint.joint_temperature, 

def listener():
    Initialize the ROS node and the topic to which it subscribes.
    rospy.init_node('shadowhand_subscriber_python', anonymous=True)
    rospy.Subscriber("srh/shadowhand_data", joints_data, callback)
