hello, currently, i have setup the manipulator using moveit setup assistant. what i want exactly is the package/library which now can take input from moveit joint states, and give the output in either parameters like velocity, direction...or even the pulses to control the hardware motors(stepper motors in my case). (in short, i wanted package/library similar to that of servo example mentioned in rosserial_arduino). is there any package/library/program available to satisfy my this hardware level need? (a hardware controller may be)....or do i have to write it down for my specific hardware(i use microcontroller as arduino) from scratch.....?. i'm on ros indigo, ubuntu 14.04. thanks.

not yet.what i have figured out until now is to write custom node which will talk with joint states and with that of microcontroller stuff.....not sure is it the correct way or not....
