This package provides a driver node for the SICK LD-MRS400001 Laser Scanner. The node can be initiated using:
rosrun sick_ldmrs sickldmrs.py
The node publishes on five separate topics:
PointCloud2 topic - containing the 3D points, layer, echo number, echo widths and time deltas.
Four LaserScan topics (one for each scan layer of the device).
Parameters can be modified via the dynamic_reconfigure gui:
rosrun dynamic_reconfigure reconfigure_gui
The node is written in Python/Numpy.
No facility is provided for changing the IP address or port of the device. This can be achieved by using the software provided with the device (LD-MRS View).
