A ROS sensor driver for the Azure Kinect Developer Kit.
This project is a node which publishes sensor data from the Azure Kinect Developer Kit to the Robot Operating System (ROS). Developers working with ROS can use this node to connect an Azure Kinect Developer Kit to an existing ROS installation.
This repository uses the Azure Kinect Sensor SDK to communicate with the Azure Kinect DK. It supports both Linux and Windows installations of ROS.
This ROS node outputs a variety of sensor data, including:
The camera is fully configurable using a variety of options which can be specified in ROS launch files or on the command line.
However, this node does not expose all the sensor data from the Azure Kinect Developer Kit hardware. It does not provide access to:
For more information about how to use the node, please see the usage guide.
This code is provided as a starting point for using the Azure Kinect Developer Kit with ROS. Community developed features are welcome.
