I am working with Gazebo and Rviz with motion planning plugin. I am trying to work out motion planning for a robot I designed. How do I include the dynamics of the robot to simulate the motion planning with moveit?

I feel this requires some clarification: what do you mean with "dynamics" specifically? Are you thinking of velocity, acceleration and jerk (and up) limits to be taken into account while planning with MoveIt? Or would you like to achieve as close-to-real-world as possible behaviour in Gazebo?

There are a few ways to do that. If you plan on using MoveIt, I suggest you create the robot description using URDF ( ) and see some tutorials on creating the SRDF, control parameters and kinematics parameters for it.

In case you don't plan on using MoveIt you can take a look at URDF in Gazebo ( ), control plugins in Gazebo ( ) and take a step by step in the Gazebo tutorials in general.
