  • What is the reason for namespacing everything as pr2_mechanism? Should it be pr2_mechanism_model instead?

  • It seems like the main purpose of pr2_mechanism::Chain is to generate a KDL::Chain. Since KDL::Tree works well with the URDF, do we need the chain class?


  • Remove GripperTransmission

  • Robot has initXml. Should it be initialized from URDF instead?

Meeting agenda
