2014-07-16 14:30:39 -0500 commented question QT and RVIZ

ROS Hydro, Ubuntu 12.04, GeForce GTX 760, NVIDIA Driver 331.62

2014-07-16 13:58:53 -0500 asked a question QT and RVIZ

There seems to be a big difference in performance between running rviz standalone and running rviz inside of QT. Any thoughts as to what is causing this drop in performance? My guess is the standalone version is using the GPU since the processors do not seem to get bogged down as much.

2014-05-27 12:08:36 -0500 asked a question Rviz render panel on GPU

I am currently writing a QT GUI that uses rviz render panels. I have determined that these render panel instances are not automatically running on my GPU, since they slow down as my processor gets bogged down. A standalone Rviz instance does not have the same sluggishness under these conditions, therefore I assume it is running on the GPU. What do I need to do in order to have a librviz render panel instance run on the GPU?

I am trying to setup Jenkins to build my ros hydro packages. I have yet to find any useful documentation on integrating ROS with Jenkins. Can someone point me in the correct directions as to how to setup the ROS Environment and run catkin_make on a package?

When I try to rosmake pcl17 or pcl17_ros i get the following error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lsensor_msgs

I have the sensor_msgs package. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this would happen?

2013-05-19 06:34:25 -0500 asked a question Jaco Arm MoveIt

I am looking to integrate the Jaco arm into moveit. I have the arm simulating and planning correctly in moveit, and I am now trying to integrate the plan on the real arm. Unfortunately the moveit documentation is focused on the PR2 and not generalized to adapting to other platforms. Does anyone have any incite as to how to integrate moveit on an actual platform?
