Hi, I am new in ROS, but I have a Hokuyo UTM-30LX laser range finder. I want to detect object that move at laser scan range and publish the position of the moving object. can anyone help me?

I am working in ubuntu 16.04 LTS with ROS Kinnect install. For the laser I use urg_node. I prefer to code with python programming language.

Did you get what you expected ?? If yes can you share that piece of information. The thing is even I am working on something like that, so as to say I want to get the position of a moving robot with the help of another stationary robot with its laser scanner

I am not sure if it is something you were looking for, but I have found out two packages on GitHub that uses LaserScan to detect obstacles and also a few articles on the IEEE Xplorer about the theme.

1. Obstacle Detection

2. Obstacle Detection

IEEE Xplorer Laser Scan detection

I hope this help.
