The proximity_sensor_driver communicates over a SUB20 with the controller box of the proximity sensor. The driver takes some arguments that can be configured in the sensor_config.yaml:

sensor_count the number of patches that are in the proximity sensor chain

noise_threshold Patches with a value in the range of this parameter to init are considered as inactive

static_threshold Patches with a reading over the range of noise_threshold but within static_threshold are considered as (abs(init - reading) - noise_threshold) / static_threshold % active.

dynamic_threshold Not used yet

After you have configured the driver you can launch it with

roslaunch proximity_sensor_driver proximity_sensor_driver.launch
