I'm trying to run two Jaco2 Kinova arms and use them with moveIt. I was wondering what changes do I have to make in order for them to work with moveIt? URDF file changes? moveIt setup assistant? .. etc.

I'm using ROS indigo, Ubuntu 14.04, with the latest kinova-ros package on GitHub (master branch)

Either create a single udrf/xacro file having two arms and configure one moveit or use two moveit with appropriate namespace and tf_prefix.

Ok I will try. I have made one URDF file for both arms and a moveIt config package, but I wasn't able to send the command to the robots. Anyway, the second option seems easier. Thanks a lot
