When I run tod_detecting I get the following error;

recognizer: /opt/ros/diamondback/stacks/geometry/eigen/include/Eigen/src/Core/DenseStorage.h:71: Eigen::internal::plain_array<t, size,="" matrixorarrayoptions,="" 16="">::plain_array() [with T = float, int Size = 4, int MatrixOrArrayOptions = 0]: Assertion `(reinterpret_cast<size_t>(array) & 0xf) == 0 && "this assertion is explained here: " "" " * READ THIS WEB PAGE !!! *"' failed.

When I get a backtrace I see the problem is coming from the point_cloud.h inside the pcl package.

I visited the web page but i didn't understand what is causing this error.

Does anyone know how to cope with it?

Best regards..

I defined both EIGEN_DONT_VECTORIZE and EIGEN_DISABLE_UNALIGNED_ARRAY_ASSERT inside the recognizer.cpp and the problem is solved

The answer to this has very much to do with what exactly you're doing. If you're running a tod_detecting launch file that doesn't run any of your code, then it's almost certainly a bug in tod_detecting.

If you are using tod_detecting inside your own code, you could very well be violating the preconditions for using Eigen types with/inside your classes and functions.

In either case, more information about what you are doing and/or what you don't understand about Eigen is needed to help you.

I actually run tod_detecting launch file so I am not sure what causes this eigen assertion. But I know program tries to reach this function PointCloud () : width (0), height (0), is_dense (true), sensor_origin_ (Eigen::Vector4f::Zero ()), sensor_orientation_ (Eigen::Quaternionf::Identity ()) and (Eigen::Vector4f::Zero ()) is what causes the problem. In the end of the link it says "define both EIGEN_DONT_VECTORIZE and EIGEN_DISABLE_UNALIGNED_ARRAY_ASSERT. This keeps the 128-bit alignment code and thus preserves ABI compatibility, but completely disables vectorization." for getting rid of this assertion error. But I don't get where should I define these???
