I was wondering if anybody knew of any packages within ROS that can be used to solve inverse kinematics for a 6 DoF robot arm (possibly other DoF as well). I am hoping to do path planning (shortest distance to object), which will involve solving inverse kinematics. I also want to display the robot arm and its path in rviz. Any advice? Thanks!

I think you should really take a look to MoveIt. Good luck! Be patient and try to understand ROS well before adventuring for MoveIt. I found it really complicated and very bad documented
