Hi everyone, Im having trouble with depthimage_to_laserscan, its essentially upside down, if i try rotate the TF by 180 degrees the map is offset from the laserscan? is there anyway to flip the depthimage_to_laserscan?

Did you try to flip your depth image?

How is that done?

Use OpenCV function flip :

See this post for details

I know there is a way with OpenCV but this would consume much more processing power flipping each depth image?

This will not affect performance at all if you are working on a desktop or on a laptop.

The other way to do image processing is by means of image_transport but I did not find a method for image flipping. Or you can try image_rotate package but it does the same opencv operations.

The depth camera is on a Raspberry Pi.I will try that, thanks for the help.
