MoveIt Tutorials

These tutorials will quickly get you, and your robot, using the MoveIt Motion Planning Framework.

doc/quickstart_in_rviz/rviz_plugin_head.png

In these tutorials, the Franka Emika Panda robot is used as a quick-start demo. Alternatively, you can easily use any robot that has already been configured to work with MoveIt - check the list of robots running MoveIt to see whether MoveIt is already available for your robot. Otherwise, you can setup MoveIt to work with your custom robot in the tutorial section "Integration with a New Robot", below.

MoveGroup - ROS Wrappers in C++ and Python

The simplest way to use MoveIt through scripting is using the move_group_interface. This interface is ideal for beginners and provides unified access to many of the features of MoveIt.

Using MoveIt Directly Through the C++ API

Building more complex applications with MoveIt often requires developers to dig into MoveIt’s C++ API. As an added plus, using the C++ API directly skips many of the ROS Service/Action layers resulting in significantly faster performance.

Integration with a New Robot

Before attempting to integrate a new robot with MoveIt, check whether your robot has already been setup (see the list of robots running MoveIt). Otherwise, follow the tutorials in this section to integrate your robot with MoveIt (and share your results on the MoveIt mailing list)
