Hello all, As mentioned in the tilte, i'd like to know if it's possible to get the depth map from many kinects (parts of turtlebots) connected at the same time to the workstation?

to explain more: I have 3 turtlebots and i'd like to visualize at the same time what they see in the workstation.

Is it possible to do?

Thanks in advance.

You and me both buddy. Not with turtlebots, but I'm currently running three kinects with depths simultaneously. Do you simply want to see all three at the same time? Or are you trying to splice all the data into one big visualization? Be a little more specific and I can post an answer.

Thank you Athoesen for replying me :) What i'd like to do is to get the 3D model of an entire room using at least 3 kinects in real time. so, I'd like to see all three at the same time. And using this "real time map", my mobile robot can navigate autonomously. Is this possible ?
