Hi everyone,

In the velodyne package, how do you select dual returns mode for velodyne VLP16?.

Thank you

I don't think I've seen support for this added to the velodyne driver, and I haven't even seen any documentation from Velodyne about how to enable it. You may have to add this support yourself.

I think dual return was defined here? is it true? Dual return have been defined in rawdata.h ---> http://docs.ros.org/indigo/api/velody... program line
00063 static const int VLP16_FIRINGS_PER_BLOCK = 2; // dual return

After connecting to VLP16, connect to the web server at http://192.168.1.201/ and you will find settings to change many hardware settings. There you can change the return mode.

VLP-16 support is in the source, but not yet complete or released.

I maintain that package, but do not have a VLP-16, nor have I heard of dual returns mode.

If you can figure out how to do it, please submit a pull request to update the code.
