hello very good day

I am new with ros, I want to test a trajectory with ur5.

I use moveit, which generates several files as demo.launch but I don't understand how to program a path in which file. for me it is still confusing, the dependencies, files and structure of an application in ros, I appreciate your collaboration.

Start with the moveit tutorials, these use the UR5 arm.Panda arm rather than UR5 but it is a very similar setup process.

I've previously written a tutorial on connecting to a physical arm:

You can also use the database feature of moveit to store poses that you set manually.

The MoveIt tutorials for Kinetic are written with a Franka Emika Panda robot as an example, not a UR5.

yes, sorry I had that completely wrong, was looking at the universal_robot package tutorial that I had open instead
