Dear ROS Community,

I created a ROS driver for the PMD CamBoard pico flexx (a very small ToF sensor) and I would like to share it with you.

The ROS driver publishes point clouds, depth, ir and noise images through ROS topics, supports dynamic reconfigure, nodelets with zero copy transfers and comes with a fully configurable launch file and a detailed readme.

The sources can be found on our GitHub:


Information on the device itself can be found here:

Some device features:
- size: 68 x 17 x 7.25 mm (WxHxD)
- measurement range: 0.1 - 4 m
- FPS: 5 to 45
- resolution: 224 x 171

Best regards,
