Hey there !

I'm working with Rviz modeling my robot.

what I want to do is to change there articulations depending on real robot articulation !

I already get the articulation from real robot in ROS, then all what I have to do is to apply those articulations in RViz

=> So my question is how can I do that !

The final resulat that I want to get is in this video: Get exactly what I have in Rviz in real robot; like moving the real robot from Rviz ! NB: I already have a package that can get Cartesian coordinates and joints values from the real robot to ROS.

If you have cartesian control of the robot already worked out, you can use an interactive marker in rviz to control the robot:

I was thinking about Markers but actually I need little bit more details.

I already have an interactive marker in my arm-robot in the end effector.. so how could I start ? Do I need an interactive marker for each articulation ? Do I need to communicate with this/those markers ? if so how ?

I'm not sure about that, maybe someone with more experience in arm's can give you a pointer.
