On the PR2, the joint controller provides two different actions, JointTrajectoryAction and a the new FollowJointTrajectory. Is there any documentation on how to use this action? I've run both and seem to get the same trajectories with the different JointTolerances I've tried.

Running electric on a PR2. Relevant links: control_msgs, FollowJointTrajectoryAction.

See my answer to this question:

We'll try and put up some Wiki documentation soon.

The other useful bit that I got from Stu offline is "The short version is that FollowJointTrajectory adds tolerances that, when violated, cause the trajectory to abort"

Can anyone tell me how to use FollowJointTrajectoryAction? Where is the ros node implementing FollowJointTrajectoryAction server sits?

And why move_arm always look for FollowJointTrajectoryAction message type even if I put the controller action name in the variable "controller_action_name (string, default: /r_arm_controller/joint_trajectory_action/)" as "arm_controller/joint_trajectory_action"??
