What the way to convert point cloud data from Kinect sensor into laserscan in ROS Indigo? In Electric i'd made it via pointcloud_to_laserscan from turtlebot-robot stack. Thanks!

In ROS Indigo you can find this functionality on the package depthimage_to_laserscan.

Good luck!

Use the depthimage_to_laserscan package. However, it uses the depth image provided by your sensor (in your case, the Kinect) as opposed to the point cloud (practically the same thing).

I had some trouble with the distortion model from my sensor when I used it. Ensure that your camera_info provides all the parameters that the package requires.
