Raw Message Definition
# Representation of state for joints with multiple degrees of freedom,
# following the structure of JointState.
# It is assumed that a joint in a system corresponds to a transform that gets applied
# along the kinematic chain. For example, a planar joint (as in URDF) is 3DOF (x, y, yaw)
# and those 3DOF can be expressed as a transformation matrix, and that transformation
# matrix can be converted back to (x, y, yaw)
# Each joint is uniquely identified by its name
# The header specifies the time at which the joint states were recorded. All the joint states
# in one message have to be recorded at the same time.
# This message consists of a multiple arrays, one for each part of the joint state.
# The goal is to make each of the fields optional. When e.g. your joints have no
# wrench associated with them, you can leave the wrench array empty.
# All arrays in this message should have the same size, or be empty.
# This is the only way to uniquely associate the joint name with the correct
