Hi Tang,

I'm glad to see this!  I've always liked the Razor, but it did need better

I couldn't find a link to the firmware or your interface driver.  Can you
provide a link directly to the razor package?


Also, you should consider using
http://www.ros.org/wiki/depthimage_to_laserscan instead of
pointcloud_to_laserscan.  It should use a lot less CPU in most situations
and can be run on platforms without PCL.
