chomp_motion_planner: CHOMP - Covariant Hamiltonian Optimization for Motion Planning
CHOMP is a motion planner based on trajectory optimization.
It generates smooth, collision-free trajectories. For technical, algorithmic details,
please refer to:

chomp_motion_planner implements the motion planning interface that the move_arm package requires. More details about this interface are available at: http://www.ros.org/wiki/move_arm. The tutorial on that page demonstrates how to get started using the entire motion planning stack. All it requires to use CHOMP is to launch the chomp_planner.launch instead of xxxx_yyyy_planner.launch.
