Hello everyone, as in title I would like to understand which is the difference in data between those two topics, both arising when I call the joint_state_broadcaster in ros2 control in ROS Galactic. I know there is a difference in the message type (sensor_msgs vs control_msgs) but I would like to understand a more conceptual difference between them. it seems they both publish the same data about position, velocity and effort of the joints. Thank you in advance for your answers!
