Hi knxa,

I am wondering if this question would be better suited for http://answers.ros.org instead of this forum

Any way, IMHO the SMACH/ActionLib approach would be a better fit for the scenario that you describe.

You can define things like "Read Sensor A" as ROS services, things like "Move Motor B (distance x2, velocity v2)" as Actions and then write a SMACH script. This way you can create subtasks and combine them into more complex behaviors.

I would recommend you to read [Actionlib](http://wiki.ros.org/actionlib) and [SMACH](http://wiki.ros.org/smach) documentation and tutorials.

Best regards,
