Adding perception to motion planning

In the previous section, we learned how to plan and execute trajectories for our robot using programs. However, we weren't taking into account perception, were we?

Usually, we will want to take the data from a 3D vision sensor into account; for instance, from a Kinect camera. This will give us real-time information about the environment, which will allow us to plan more realistic motions, introducing any changes that the environment suffers from. So, in this section, we are going to learn how we can add a 3D vision sensor to MoveIt in order to perform vision-assisted motion planning!
