Announcement by Ivan Dryanovski of ccny-ros-pkg to ros-users

Hi everyone,

We pushed out new debian releases of the asctec_drivers, mav_tools, and scan_tools stacks, The stacks support diamondback, electric, and unstable.

Here are some highlights of the changes:


  • canonical_scan_matcher has been renamed to laser_scan_matcher;
  • laser_scan_matcher now supports multiple sources of predictive input such as imu, odometry, and alpha-beta velocity tracking; can work with laser scans or pcl pointclouds
  • laser_ortho_projector behavior significantly changed to match new laser_scan_matcher - check the wiki page for details


  • Imu messages published by asctec_proc now take data from the IMUCalcData/acc_*_calib fields (instead of previous incorrect acc_*). The values are measured in different frames of reference; if you are using the /mab/Imu messages, you will need to account for this change.

We also improved the nodelet support in all packages and fixed various bugs reported by the community.
