Joint Position Controller

Overview

The Joint Position Controller commands a desired position to the joint. The position is controlled using PID control to specify the effort to the joint. When started, the controller will command to the current position.

The commands from the position controller will be constrained by the safety limits of the robot, so position commands near the joint limits may not be achieved.
