Hello,

I'm trying to use Moveit and a Baxter robot to perform some complex actions (i.e. each action is composed of multiple motions) on a table.

My main issue is that sometimes these action would fail simply because one of these motions left the robot arms in some configuration that does not leave enough space for the successive motions to be planned successfully. This happens especially when the objects on the table I'm acting upon are very close to each other.

Is there a way in Moveit to plan multiple sequential goals together before actually moving the arms? Alternatively, can you suggest any other strategy to avoid these kind of conflicts?

Thank you!

Finally found the problem. Apparently, you just need to launch pycharm from a baxterized terminal and it will work. Just sorucing ROS or modifying the desktop file as reported on the ROS wiki is obviously not enough. Still, it would to have a way to set this inside the project or launch a "baxterized" PyCharm from the desktop launcher.

2016-05-11 11:25:08 -0500 asked a question Run node debug on a remote master

Hello everyone,

I have a question about IDEs and debugging.

I am currently working with a Baxter robot that has its own ROS core so whenever I need to launch a node I do that from a terminal where I set the master uri and other necessary variables (this is usually done automatically by a provided script). As my project becomes more complex it would be useful to use my IDE debugging utility but I could not find an option or a workaround to tell the IDE to run my code the same way.

Maybe you can give me a hint? I am currently using IntelliJ IDEs (pyCharm, IDEA, CLion) and I am mainly interested in the Python part.

Thank you!
