MoveIt accepted to Google Summer of Code 2022

MoveIt has been accepted again as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code :tada:. Details about the program can be found here. Ideas for possible projects are listed here. If you are a student who enjoys working on MoveIt, this is your chance. At a minimum, you should have experience with ROS. Ideally, you have also worked with MoveIt before. Almost all projects require experience with programming in C++. Now is the time to discuss your interest in a particular project on Discourse or, when appropriate, on Github. I highly recommend to engage with the MoveIt community before submitting an application. Make sure to look at our tips for successful GSoC applications.


Very nice selection of topics!
Looking forward to the python bindings and the ability to attach/detach end-effector links.

Hi @lorepieri8,

I am in the process of writing a design document for a new Python API for MoveIt 2, feel free to list any functionalities that are important to you and I can try to incorporate these.

I’ll also be sharing the document later next week in case you wish to take a look and add comments/feedback.
