Installation instructions

Recommended Posts

Hi, there maybe a typo in the installation instructions. The final test executable should be MPATest because RapidPlanMPATest does not seem to exist.

Or should it exist and its absence indicates an installation error?

Hi Kirill,


That is correct; the command is just MPATest. Thank you for catching that!


To ensure that you can execute the command, add the following lines to your .bashrc file if they are not already there

source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash

Relaunch your terminal or resource .bashrc if you add the lines

Hi Kurt

I am following the  Realtime Robotics Product documentation to set up the dynamic avoidance system in changing environment, As described in the documentation(https://docs.rtr.ai/_source/RapidPlanRoboticsIntroduction.html#motionplanningintro), the a motion planning accelerator (MPA) board, which is a hardware, is one component of RapidPlan. 

I am wondering that whether the MPA is indispensable. If I don't have the MPA, could I still use Rapidplan?
