ROS supercharges Scandy Core
The Scandy team has recently added support for the Robot Operating System (ROS) to ScandyCore, Scandy’s 3D scanning platform. This allows ScandyCore to acquire 3D data from any ROS-compatible depth sensor. It also provides our developers easy access to widely-used datasets, played into ScandyCore via ROS, for testing, validating, and benchmarking purposes. Below is an example 3D reconstruction using the freiburg2_rpy sequence from the RGB-D SLAM dataset and benchmark provided by the Computer Vision Group at Technical University of Munich.
In upcoming posts we’ll demonstrate live scanning in ScandyCore using a variety of depth sensors.
