MoveIt Collision Avoidance With Point Cloud 2

Hi, I am attempting to set up a UR5 with MoveIt and an asus xtion for collision avoidance based on the sensor data in a Point Cloud 2 stream. I am stuck on how to publish the data from the point cloud 2 topic to moveit's planning scene so it can be used for collision checking. I currently have octomap installed and running and can generate an occupancy grid from the point cloud 2 stream, however octomap_server does not appear to be publishing any data to a topic moveit can use. Is there a way to publish the data either from the point cloud 2 or occupancy grid topics to moveit for collision avoidance? If so, where should I look?

You should not need to do anything with occupancy grids or point clouds yourself. Getting MoveIt to use the output of a RGBD sensor to construct Octomaps, add those to the planning scene and plan around them only takes a few lines of configuration.

See the 3D Perception/Configuration page and / or moveit/wiki/3D Sensors for information.
