Hello everyone, I want to do motion planning with piecewise polynomial functions, so I need quadratic programming. Does anyone have recommend library which can run in ROS?

Can you clarify what you mean by:

which can run in ROS?

ROS runs on Linux (or OSX, or Windows these days), so anything that is Linux (ie: Ubuntu) compatible can be used with ROS.

There is no point in looking for libraries that run "in ROS".

ROS Is just a middleware that allows you to communicate between nodes. You can use any python or C++ libraries to do your quadratic programming. I would recommend CVXOPT in python.
