ifm3d-ros for the O3R

NOTE: The ifm3d-ros package has had major changes recently. Please be aware that this might cause problems on your system for building pipelines based on our old build instructions. We tried to ensure backward compatibility where ever possible. If you find any major breaks, please let us know.

ifm3d-ros is a wrapper around ifm3d enabling the usage of the O3R camera platform (ifm ToF cameras) from within ROS software systems. Please make sure to use version 1.0.0 or above for O3R compatibility.

Organization of the software

The ifm3d-ros meta package provides three subpackages:

  • ifm3d_ros_driver provides the core interface for receiving data for ifm 3d (O3R) cameras.

  • ifm3d_ros_msgs gathers the ifm-specific messages types and the services for configuring and triggering the camera.

  • ifm3d_ros_examples provides additional helper scripts and examples.

The name ifm3d-ros was kept even tough this is not consistent with ROS package naming conventions. This ROS package has been split into three sub packages in an effort to facilitate dependency handling on distributed systems and simplify deployment on embedded platforms. For instance, the package ifm3d_ros_msgs can be installed independently of the other packages to control the camera from a separate computing platform. The ifm3d_ros_examples holds our launch files and examples.
