Convert the provided calibration data from the standard Velodyne XML format to the node's YAML format. It is usually kept in the "DSR Viewer" folder on the CD which was included with the LIDAR.

I'm trying to hookup the VLP-16 using ROS and on the Ubuntu 16.04. Following your steps outlined in the Wiki I' am having problems at step 3. http://wiki.ros.org/velodyne/Tutorial...

rosrun velodyne_pointcloud gen_calibration.py 32db.xml

I can not seem to find the xml file.

Could you provide some help?

I don't know where that tutorial came from. It's not listed in the Tutorials page.

It appears to have been adapted from the 32e tutorial, and not fully converted for the VLP-16. The line you mention refers to a 32e XML file. It should not be needed for the VLP-16.

To view the points run VLP16_points.launch instead of 32e_points.launch.
