Only released in EOL distros:  


This stack contains basic nodes that are useful for the Bosch proximity sensor. The stack was developed using a PR2, but the nodes can also be used on other robots.


The proximity_sensor_driver communicates over a sub20 device with the proximity sensor. Use dynamic_reconfigure to set the number of sensors and alarm limits.


With the proximity_sensor_dashboard the sensor data can be quickly visualized.

Proximity Sensor TFs

The proximity_sensor_tf package contains a node that publishes tf transforms for each patch.

Visualize in rviz

With proximity_sensor_visualize the position and the status of each patch can be visualized in rviz.

Add sensed obstacles to collision map

proximity_sensor_add_obstacles can add obstacles that the proximity sensor has detected to the collision map of the environment server.
