What is a MOVE group in MOVEit?

MoveIt operates on sets of joints called “planning groups” and stores them in an object called the JointModelGroup . Throughout MoveIt the terms “planning group” and “joint model group” are used interchangably.

What is MOVEit file transfer?

MOVEit Transfer (formerly known as MOVEit DMZ or MOVEit File Transfer) supports the exchange of files and data between servers, systems and applications within and between organisations, as well as between groups and individuals using a common shared folder with simple browser access for users.

What is MoveIt file transfer?

What is ros2?

Picture taken from Nasa news. Robot Operating System (ROS) is a set of open source algorithms, hardware driver software and tools developed to develop robot control software. Even though it has operating system in its name it is not an operating system.

What is MOVEit application?

MOVEit is a managed file transfer software produced by Ipswitch, Inc. MOVEit encrypts files and uses secure File Transfer Protocols to transfer data with automation, analytics and failover options.

What is a Cartesian path?

In the context of robotic arms, Cartesian planning is the generation of motion trajectories where a goal is specified in terms of the desired location of the end effector.

Should I learn ROS or ROS2?

If you already know ROS and want to start a brand new project, then going the ROS2 way is probably what you should do, so it means less transition work in the future. The core concepts between ROS1 and ROS2 are similar, so the more experienced you are with ROS1, the less time you’ll take to learn ROS2.

Does NASA use ROS?

NASA uses ROS in other space robots such as Astrobee, the free-flying successor to SPHERES. Multiple Astrobees are at work inside the ISS. Currently, NASA and Open Robotics are working on the VIPER program. The goal of VIPER is to send a mobile robot to the South Pole of the Moon in 2023.

What is move group ROS?

It provides easy to use functionality for most operations that a user may want to carry out, specifically setting joint or pose goals, creating motion plans, moving the robot, adding objects into the environment and attaching/detaching objects from the robot.

What is Cartesian control?

Cartesian Control is the ability to move a robotic manipulator arm, along linear cartesian axes. Or in simple terms, to move the robot arm forward, back, left, right, up, down in a straight line. Some robotic systems, namely ‘Cartesian coordinate robots’, are constrained to linear motion along defined axes.

How difficult is ROS?

Learning ROS is not a very easy task. ROS is having official tutorials to get started, but for understanding those tutorials either you should have good experience in C++, Python, and Linux or you need a good mentor in order to get started. It will take time to get used to the ROS concepts, ROS commands, and ROS APIs.

Should I move to Ros 2?

You should really consider ROS2 to reduce the amount of code transfer in the future. Put people with experience with ROS on the project. Now is a good time to switch. ROS2 Dashing is the first LTS release so it’s now safe to start porting drivers without fear of new features that will break functionality.
