This FTP will add realtime support to MoveIt through a number of innovations including full migration to ROS 2. This will improve the minimum cycle time of industrial applications leveraging motion planning in ROS. Despite MoveIt’s usage in many industria”&”l systems with powerful manipulators, MoveIt lacks appropriate realtime support. Faster and more deterministic planning times will enable closed-loop control and more reactive systems. This will support industrial use cases were process throughput is of utmost importance.
