I’m very happy to announce a new Humble MoveIt2 Tutorial that shows how to simulate a robot in Isaac Sim.
NVIDIA’s Isaac Sim is a powerful platform for simulating robotic systems, and the MoveIt2 framework is the de-facto standard for motion planning and execution in robotics. In this tutorial, we will show you how to combine these two tools to create sophisticated and realistic simulations of robotic systems. We have written a new driver that simplifies the integration of Isaac Sim and MoveIt2, allowing you to easily incorporate motion planning and execution into your simulations. One of the exciting features of the new driver includes support for any robot (thanks to ros2_control!) and also works with mimic joint for parallel grippers:
With this tutorial and driver, you can take your robotics simulations to the next level!
I would like to thank @JafarAbdi, @scastro and @tylerweaver for all their help getting this released!
