Dear ROS community,

We have developed a driver for the Kinect RGB-D sensor for ROS. The
driver uses Hector Martin's libfreenect [1] library, and currently
outputs a PointCloud, an Image, and a CalibrationInfo topic. The
relationship between depth readings and actual distance is determined
through experimental calibration. The release incorporates
contributions from Stéphane Magnenat's work on a Kinect driver.

The documentation for the driver, calibration results, and example
video are available at the wiki page:



Thank you,
