Error Loading Custom Robotic Manipulator Model in MoveIt2 on ROS2 Humble(error launching

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to configure my custom-made robotic manipulator to use MoveIt2 and perform motion planning and simulation in Gazebo. I'm running into some issues when trying to run the file. Specifically, I'm seeing several error messages related to the controller manager and robot model not being loaded.

Here are the details: ROS Distro: ROS2 Humble Packages: gazebo_ros2_control, moveit2, and a custom package for my robot

Error Messages:-

Hello ROS community,

I recently encountered an issue while using the MoveIt2 Setup Assistant, where it generated integer values for joint limits in the configuration files. This caused compatibility issues when launching MoveIt2, resulting in the following error message:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'rclcpp::exceptions::InvalidParameterTypeException' what(): parameter 'robot_description_planning.joint_limits.joint_X.max_velocity' has invalid type: expected [double] got [integer]

After investigating the problem, I discovered that the MoveIt2 Setup Assistant generates integer values for joint limits by default, while MoveIt expects them to be doubles (floating-point numbers).

To resolve this issue, I recommend following these steps:

Open the configuration files generated by the MoveIt2 Setup Assistant.
Locate the joint limit parameters, such as joint_X.max_velocity, where X corresponds to the joint number.
Change the integer values to doubles by adding a decimal point and a zero after the integer value. For example, change 5 to 5.0.
Save the modified configuration files.

By changing the integer values to doubles, MoveIt will correctly interpret the joint limits and prevent the InvalidParameterTypeException error.

I hope this solution helps anyone who may encounter this issue while using the MoveIt2 Setup Assistant. If you have any further questions or need clarification, feel free to ask!

Best regards, roskuttan
