Community meeting: ROS 2 + Ignition Gazebo (August 2021)

Hi, community! :ignition:

Our next community meeting is coming up in the last Wednesday of August!

This month we’ll receive two guests presenting about projects that use Ignition Gazebo with ROS 2! :ignition: :gazebo: :ros: :two: Both projects are using ROS 2 Foxy with Ignition Edifice.

Mobile manipulators with MoveIt 2

Vatan Aksoy Tezer (@vatanaksoytezer) will present the work that PickNik Robotics is doing in collaboration with Hello Robot to simulate mobile manipulators in Ignition Gazebo using MoveIt 2. The work is currently on PickNik’s fork and will soon be upstreamed to Hello Robot’s repository.

Differential drive navigation with Nav 2
