Hi Konrad,

In the attached files, it seems that you are not specifying the
self-collision checks to be performed (the default is none). In $(find
irp6_test)/config/collision_checks_both_arms.yaml you have commented-out the
line that includes the relevant file (which AFAICT does not exist yet).
Without a collision map or self-collision geometries, there is nothing to
collide with!. Relevant code pasted below:

    <!-- send parameters for collision checking for PR2; this includes
parameters for the self filter -->
<!--    <rosparam command="load" ns="robot_description_collision"
file="$(find irp6_test)/config/collision_checks_both_arms.yaml" />
    <!-- send parameters needed for motion planning -->
    <rosparam command="load" ns="robot_description_planning" file="$(find
irp_test)/config/planning_groups.yaml" />

Also, you should probably define additional groups in $(find
irp_test)/config/planning_groups.yaml, which can be links-only (no joints
needed here) which specify self-collision geometry groups, e.g.,

In $(find irp_test)/config/planning_groups.yaml:

- name: selfcol1

- name: selfcol2

In $(find irp6_test)/config/collision_checks_both_arms.yaml

  - object1: selfcol1
    object2: selfcol2
    operation: enable  # Enable collision checks between link6 and
{base_link, link1, link2}
