New depth sensor, Orbbec Astra, call for testing

HI @ycx424,

Please ask debugging questions on

I’ll note that the tutorial you’re following looks to be for the TurtleBot2 with the Kinect and thus would not be expected to work with the Astra for anything specific to the camera such as setting up video streaming.

And your compile issue looks like it warrants a separate question. Please provide enough information to reproduce your problem when you ask your question, otherwise we will just be guessing what your problem is.

Hi tfoote,

Thank you very much for your quick reply. Regarding my second problem, I firstly download your released package from here. I successfully finished the first two steps. When I did “roslaunch astra_launch astra.launch”, there was a warning in the terminal.

Then, in rviz I cannot receive any data from the following topics:

Sometimes, there will be an error shown in the terminal that “Camera calibration file /home/turtlebot/.ros/camera_info/depth_Astra_Orbbec.yaml not found.”

Regarding the PointClound2, I can receive the data from /camera/rgb/camera/depth/points, but something is not working well, like this: the status error

And, I cannot receive data from topic: /camera/rgb/camera/depth_registered/points

There will be two warnings in terminal:

Thank you very much!
