Package Summary

The s3000_laser package


Driver for ROS to read the scan data from the device SICK S3000. This driver is based on the original driver developed for Player/Stage by Brian Gerkey, Kasper Stoy, Richard Vaughan, & Andrew Howard.

This driver controls the SICK S3000 safety laser scanner interpreting its data output. The driver is very basic and assumes the S3000 has already been configured to continuously output its measured data on the RS422 data lines.

Supported Hardware

This package should work with SICK S3000 safety laser scanners.
