The package provides a height estimate using a Hokuyo laser scanner.
Laser scan data is split using laser_scan_splitter and the regions being reflected downward or upward are fed into the height estimation system.
You can run the laser_height_estimation on a pre-recorded bag file that comes with the package. First, make sure you have the scan_tools stack downloaded and installed by following the instructions here.
Next, make sure you have the necessary tools installed:
1 rosmake rviz tf rosbag
Finally, run the demo:
1 roslaunch laser_height_estimation demo.launch
