Hello!I'm having trouble making the ur5 move in the simulation(everything seems fine with the moveit package so far...). there is an error on the last launch file(corresponding to exercise 2.3 d) ). I'm not being able to find the topic regarding the joint_state_publisher node.I've tried arm_controller/state and joint_states from the topic list, but an error is shown in both cases. Can you help? Thank you!

Hello Astronauta,

For the Project, the topic that contains the states of the joints is '/joint_states'. If you execute the command "rostopic echo /joint_states" on a Web Shell, you should get the data printed. So, for the launch file in exercise 2.3d, the section where you have to state this topic would be like this:

<node name="joint_state_publisher" pkg="joint_state_publisher" type="joint_state_publisher"> <param name="/use_gui" value="false"/> <rosparam param="/source_list">[/joint_states]</rosparam> </node>

Hope this helps you!
