MoveIt Core

This repository includes core libraries used by MoveIt: - representation of kinematic models - collision detection interfaces and implementations - interfaces for kinematic solver plugins - interfaces for motion planning plugins - interfaces for controllers and sensors

These libraries do not depend on ROS and can be used independently.

0.5.9 (2014-06-23)

  • Fixed bug in RevoluteJointModel::distance() giving large negative numbers.
  • kinematics_base: added an optional RobotState for context.
  • fix pick/place approach/retreat on indigo/14.04
  • Fixed bug in RevoluteJointModel::distance() giving large negative numbers.
  • IterativeParabolicTimeParameterization now ignores virtual joints.
  • kinematics_base: added an optional RobotState for context.
  • Removed check for multi-dof joints in iterative_time_parameterization.cpp.
  • fix pick/place approach/retreat on indigo/14.04
  • IterativeParabolicTimeParameterization now ignores virtual joints. When checking if all joints are single-DOF, it accepts multi-DOF joints only if they are also virtual.
  • Fix compiler warnings
  • Address [cppcheck: unreadVariable] warning.
  • Address [cppcheck: postfixOperator] warning.
  • Address [cppcheck: stlSize] warning.
  • Address [-Wunused-value] warning.
  • Address [-Wunused-variable] warning.
  • Address [-Wreturn-type] warning.
  • Address [-Wsign-compare] warning.
  • Address [-Wreorder] warning.
  • Allow joint model group to have use IK solvers with multiple tip frames
  • KinematicsBase support for multiple tip frames and IK requests with multiple poses
  • dynamics_solver: fix crashbug Ignore joint that does not exist (including the virtual joint if it is part of the group).
  • Changed KinematicsBase::supportsGroup() to use a more standard call signature.
  • Merged with hydro-devel
  • Removed unnecessary error output
  • Removed todo
  • Added support for legacy IK calls without solution_callback
  • Merge branch \'hydro-devel\' into kinematic_base
  • Changed KinematicsBase::supportsGroup() to use a more standard call signature.
  • Added empty check.
  • computeCartesianPath waypoints double-up fix computeCartesianPath appends full trajectories between waypoints when given a vector of waypoints. As trajectories include their endpoints, this leads to the combined trajectory being generated with duplicate points at waypoints, which can lead to pauses or stuttering. This change skips the first point in trajectories generated between waypoints.
  • avoid unnecessary calculations
  • Created supportsGroup() test for IK solvers
  • from ros-planning/more-travis-tests More Travis test fixes.
  • Commented out failing test. run_tests_moveit_ros_perception requires glut library, and thus a video card or X server, but I haven\'t had any luck making such things work on Travis.
  • avoid unnecessary calculations If we are not going to use the missing vector then we should not create it (avoid an expensive operation).
  • Code cleanup
  • Allow joint model group to have use IK solvers with multiple tip frames
  • Authorship
  • Fixed missing removeSlash to setValues()
  • Feedback and cleaned up comment lengths
  • Cleaned up commit
  • KinematicsBase support for multiple tip frames and IK requests with multiple poses
  • More Travis test fixes. Switched test_constraint_samplers.cpp from build-time to run-time reference to moveit_resources. Added passing run_tests_moveit_core_gtest_test_robot_state_complex test to .travis.yml. Added \'make tests\' to .travis.yml to make all tests, even failing ones.
