This package provides new hardware interfaces to implement Cartesian ROS control for robot manipulators.


Several OEMs provide native Cartesian interfaces in their robot drivers. By offering new according hardware interfaces, implementers of ROS controllers get direct access to Cartesian buffers for reading and writing. Whether this provides advantages over the classic joint-based interfaces of course depends on personal use cases. The main difference is that in the Cartesian case the robot takes care of Inverse Kinematics.
