Hello, I am quite new to ROS and MoveIt and I am trying to understand how MoveIt outputs the values for the joint configurations. For example, I have a free revolute joint in my robot and I want to know if MoveIt sets the values for the joint from 0-360 deg or from -180 to +180. (or +/-radians) I need to know this because I'm working with Unity and my robot sometimes moves strangely (does multiple complete rotations instead of a short rotation) and I think it's because Unity is misinterpreting MoveIt's trajectory response.

The range is [-pi, pi]. See:

variable_bounds_[0].min_position_ = -boost::math::constants::pi<double>();
variable_bounds_[0].max_position_ = boost::math::constants::pi<double>();
