I am working on the Kinova Jaco2 arm. They have provided a ROS package which works with the real arm and the virtual arm in Gazebo. They have also set up the arm in MoveIt! Now I have two questions (the first one is more important to me).

  1. How to get the control outputs (commands) from ros_control? These are basically the joint efforts that are sent either to the actual robot or Gazebo. I looked into the topics and I wasn't able to find a topic with such commands. I want to access these commands on both the actual and virtual robots.

  2. How to get the joint commands (states) from MoveIt! before they are sent to ros_control?

Thank you very much.
