Currently the velodyne_driver package supports only the HDL-32 and 64. Will you provide a model for the VLP-16 soon?

I would like to, but I don't have access to that device, so I will need significant help from someone who does.

There is already a patch at the driver level, submitted by Brice Rebsamen. But, it does not include the additional point cloud conversions that are apparently needed.

See: https://github.com/ros-drivers/velody...

The current source master now supports the VLP-16. An Indigo release is planned.

The VLP-16 support was contributed by Patrick Hussey, with help from several others. It will be released soon, I hope.

I can't speak for @joq, but it is unlikely Clearpath will contribute/test unless we start working with the VLP-16.
