MoveIt Manipulation WG Meeting - April 22nd

The next Manipulation WG Meeting / MoveIt Maintainer Meeting will be April 22nd at 8am PST .

Your time zone: April 22, 2021 3:00 PM.


  • Old business

  • MoveIt Google Summer of Code: student proposals are ready for review. Feel free to add comments. Key questions to keep in mind:

    1. Is the proposal addressing an important gap in MoveIt’s capabilities?
    2. Does the student have the background to accomplish the stated goals?
    3. Is there a clearly stated and realistic roadmap for development?

    If you’re interested in being a mentor, let me know, and I’ll send you an invite.

  • MoveIt 1 Noetic Release. There are lots of new features.

  • ROS 2 Galactic release date is coming up. What are the outstanding issues for the corresponding MoveIt 2 release?

  • In MoveIt 2, you can now plan for a diff-drive mobile base, which enables whole body planning for robots like Hello Robot’s Stretch. (No real discussion needed; it’s just cool to see :slight_smile: .)

  • Anything else…

Please request here any agenda topics you would like included.

Let’s talk about the overdue melodic release and the associated work on reviewed-for-backport as well. We shouldn’t just pretend everyone’s on noetic, because a lot of users with actual robots are not.
