Hi all,

I was going through the tutorials for arm_navigation stack for electric. There are lot of changes in the new architecture. It would be great if these changes are documented well in term of tutorials same as that for diamondback.

  1. I was trying to add object (say cylinder) into planning scene using xml/urdf file. Is there any node which takes in the object file (urdf format) and automatically push it into planning scene? I feel there should be some node which does this type of task. There is one tutorial for electric (recently added) link text, it refers to an example of how to add a cyclinder by defining it, not by reading from cylinder's urdf file. I hope I made my point clear.

  2. Second thing I am looking for is: how to visualize known model markers? From this I mean we should define some node and its parameters in launch file and this should automatically finds known objects in the planning scene and publish those as a markers so that it could be visualize in rviz.

  3. what is the node name in electric which does the task of clearing known objects ("clear_known_objects" in diamondback)?

Would be thankful if I get my answers!

It's strange that you didn't get any answers yet. Perhaps because the question title is not precise enough? Perhaps it's better to split this into three separate questions, each with a more descriptive title, and close this question?

Dear Martin: Everything here is related to new arm_navigation stack. So I thought whoever is working with arm_navigation stack 'll reply to me. I 'll revisit and ask these questions separately.
