Getting started with ROS nodelets

ROS nodes communicate using TCP/IP protocol which might be too slow for applications that require sending large amounts of data (like 3D point clouds or video streams). For processes running on the same computer, a pointer to the data can be sent rather than sending the data itself over TCP/IO. The Intel RealSense Robotics Development…Read more Getting started with ROS nodelets

Getting started with the Intel RealSense Robotics Development Kit (RDK)

I’m the proud owner of an Intel Robotics Development Kit!  The kit comes with a RealSense R200 3D camera, a UP board with 32GB eMMC, a USB 3 adapter, a 5V 4A power supply, USB3 and connectors. The RealSense consists of an infrared laser projection system, two infrared cameras and a full HD colour camera.…Read more Getting started with the Intel RealSense Robotics Development Kit (RDK)
