Installing Moveit

To install Moveit, we'll use some pre-built binaries:

  • Enter the following command in a Terminal:
$ sudo apt install ros-melodic-moveit
  • You might also want to install additional Moveit functionalities, so use the following command as well:
$ sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-moveit-setup-assistant$ sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-moveit-simple-controller-manager$ sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-moveit-fake-controller-manager

Once they're all installed, we can begin configuring our robot using a Moveit setup assistant wizard.
