Hello all !

Taking a look today to image sent by kinect of our turtlebot, we noticed a black area on the right of the depth image, that sometimes disappears, but appears in situations where it shouldn't. We made the hypothesis that it could be the rod supporting the platform but as it disappears, that hypothesis isn't satisfying. Does someone else experienced such thing ?

Pictures :

Top left, Bottom left : Depth and camera images from the kinect ; Right : Top view of the robot in its (mapped) environment. The red line is the scan deduced from the kinect depth image (pointcloud_to_laserscan).
