MoveIt! running with the Baxter Research Robot

At ROSCON 2013, we integrated MoveIt! with the Baxter Research Robot from Rethink Robotics. Baxter has a sonar array providing some 3D information about the environment, but this information was not integrated with MoveIt! The generated motions from MoveIt! still avoid self-collisions (including collisions between the two arms). We would like to thank Rethink Robotics for allowing us to integrate with their robot, especially Joe Romano, Albert Huang, Christopher Gindel and Matthew Williamson for helping with the actual integration.
