I am trying to apply some filters and euclidean clustering to input from a Kinect sensor. Currently I am using a piece of code that calls in the "table_scene_lms400.pcd" but I would like to know how I can use input from a Kinect sensor rather than this .pcd file? I would also like to view the results in RVIZ? I know this involves subscribers and publishers and despite numerous attempts using tutorials, etc. I have not been able to accomplish this so was wondering if anybody has any code to do the above or could edit my own code/give me some tips to help me? I have included my code below. (I have tried following most online tutorials and guides but I am still struggling so any help would be greatly appreciated)
