I am fairly new to the using Moveit (as well as ROS overall), and did the tutorial on using the setup assistant for moveit. moveit.ros.org/wiki/PR2/Setup_Assistant/Quick_Start.

After successfully creating the package at the end, I then went on to run the demo.launch file that was created after creating moveit package. RVIZ came up successfully with the PR2 robot model showing. However I am unable to use the interactive markers to control the planning groups because there are no interactive markers showing. Can anyone help me understand why the interactive markers are missing?

Look at this: http://answers.ros.org/question/114936/interact-button-in-moveitrviz-plugin/ I think you have the same problem. Check your end effector.

In the tutorial that I pointed out in my original question, step 8 asks to label the end effectors. I took this as defining the end effectors. So my problem still exists after the fact that I have defined my end effectors. Thank you for your suggestion.

I added a comment in the link above; in my case the parent group for the eef definition was necessary.
