Hello, I have been following the steps in the MoveIt tutorials on this website - but after running the following command - rosrun moveit_tutorials, everything works well till the add box step, as soon as I press enter to add box, the code terminates giving error moveit_commander.exception.MoveItCommanderException: There is no group named hand, has anyone faced similar issue? Please help me in solving this issue, thanks.

The documentation uses panda_arm as the group name. However, you have edited it to make it hand. So make sure the group exists, please.

Hi @ravijoshi, panda_arm is the robot group name which is specified correctly, the error is occurring due to one specific function called attach_box() in which grasping_group = 'hand' has been specified. Also, I have not made any edits in the code, I am just running the executable script provided by the moveit_tutorials package. Please refer the code in this link and check the attach_box()function -
