Currently performing a benchmark for collaborative robots using ROS. I have been searching but I cannot find support for this robot. Anybody can confirm this?

The Motoman HC10 and HC20 are now available in the Motoman repo with the motoman_drive v1.9.0. However some of the collaborative robot feather have limitations under ROS. You should carefully review the associated note: HC Robot Notes for ROS

I've made this the accepted answer, as, as of 1.9.0, HC robots are indeed supported by MotoROS.

'support' will depend a bit on what you are after: motoman_driver supports YRC1000 controllers starting from v1.5.0, but will not work with any of the collaborative features.

We also don't yet have a robot support package for the HC10, but those are relatively trivial to create.
