Hello, I am using kinect in moveit to represent the robots environment. Are other sensors supported? Like the ensenso n20-610-16? Is there a list somewhere with all the supported sensors?

Thank tou very much for your time

There is no such thing as a list of compatible sensors, as MoveIt (really the Occupancy Map Updater plugins) just requires input in the form of sensor_msgs/PointCloud2 or sensor_msgs/Image (for depth images). As long as a ROS driver component for your sensor can output either of those, things should work.

I don't know of any ROS components for Ensenso devices (that doesn't mean there aren't though, I just don't know about them), but at least PCL supports them, so creating a rudimentary node shouldn't be too hard.
