Hi Patrick,

I have recently done the same for "my" IRB6 manipulators, but i had slightly
diferent approach. My real-time controller is implemented in OROCOS and
offer jointTrajectoryAction interface.
I have used it to run arm_navigation with kinect, on those manipulators.
You can find everythink what i used  to achive this here :
