Melodic in Kinetic:

  • MG recommends having a separate TF publisher
  • Robert is using Melodic in Kenetic


  • Stomp is useful
  • The collision detection has been integrated
  • Constrained IK is not building
  • Dave proposes adding STOMP to MoveIt!
  • This makes sense as all
  • The plan is to separate out the STOMP code into a separate repository
  • There is a question as to whether ROS-I or ROS-planning will keep the new repository
  • Action item: ROS-I folk will discuss internally and get back to us


  • Made changes to the planning scene for convex and non-convex hulls
  • Managed to use Bullet for collision checking. This is useful for getting accurate signed distances


  • Meeting up for dinner friday night


  • Lots of work came out of this
  • Bryce is interested in picking up where Raghavander left out
