From the robot's perspective, what should be the X, Y, Z convention/direction for the point cloud? And for that matter, the angles convention as well, if anybody know.

I was looking into the REP documentation, but I don't quite understand it.

As REP-103 states,

In the case of cameras, there is often a second frame defined with a "_optical" suffix. This uses a slightly different convention:

z forward
x right
y down

Which is the part you did not understand?
