laser_geometry: Utilities for converting laser scans to pointclouds
This package contains a class for converting from a 2D laser scan as defined by
sensor_msgs/LaserScan into a point cloud as defined by sensor_msgs/PointCloud
or sensor_msgs/PointCloud2. In particular, it contains functionality to account
for the skew resulting from moving robots or tilting laser scanners.
Laser Scan Projection to Point Cloud
laser_geometry::LaserProjection provides a simple method to project laser scans into point clouds while discarding out-of-range measurements.
