Hello everyone,

The greetings to you,

I would like to ask you for one problem that relates to Ros and Rviz for iiwa lBR 14. ( I am testing the Moveit package )

I am testing the Moveit package for kuka iiwa lbr. I ran rviz, added Robot State to Rviz and I received the error:

[ERROR] [1543225615.999339183, 263.730000000]: Robot semantic description not found. Did you forget to define or remap '/robot_description_semantic'?

and, when i run roslaunch iiwa_control iiwa_control.launch, the error appered:

[ERROR] [1543227396.625961419]: Could not find parameter robot_description on parameter server
[robot_state_publisher-3] process has died [pid 2718, exit code 255, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/robot_state_publisher/robot_state_publisher joint_states:=/iiwa/joint_states __name:=robot_state_publisher __log:=/home/syscon/.ros/log/5adc3ef4-f164-11e8-adc8-88366cf67454/robot_state_publisher-3.log].
log file: /home/syscon/.ros/log/5adc3ef4-f164-11e8-adc8-88366cf67454/robot_state_publisher-3*.log

I have been looking for some solutions on web, unfortunately I still not found any solutions to deal with.

Can you please give me some suggestions ?

Thanks in advance,

Toan Nguyen,

Thanks gvdhoorn for your reply, I intalled the Moveit package in this link: https://moveit.ros.org/install/ . I installed Moveit packgage for ROS Kinetic

That is just MoveIt, but MoveIt does not describe your robot. Which package contains your robot definition? Is it iiwa_stack?

Yes, I uses iiwa_stack

There is a wiki along with example packages. Have you read the wiki and FAQ? Have you tried roslaunch iiwa_description demo.launch? It sounds like you are not starting up MoveIt at all.
