urdf

This package contains a C++ parser for the Unified Robot Description Format (URDF), which is an XML format for representing a robot model. The code API of the parser has been through our review process and will remain backwards compatible in future releases.

urdf::Model is a class containing robot model data structure. Every Robot Description File (URDF) can be described as a list of Links (urdf::Model::links_) and Joints (urdf::Model::joints_). The connection between links(nodes) and joints(edges) should define a tree (i.e. 1 parent link, 0+ children links).
