I know tf is depreciated, and that it has been transfered to tf2. I was wondering if anyone has an idea how to convert tf messages to tf2. Particularly, I am using laser scan matcher that is supposed to be supported only till indigo. The laser scan matcher is based off tf, so it possible to transfer tf to tf2? I am new to this, not sure how to do it.

I have looked at the tutorials for tf2, but I am not sure how to build a node for this. Any suggestions, or guidance is appreciated. Here are the links I have looked through: Laser Scan Matcher Link: TF2 Conversion:

Software: Ubuntu 16.04, Kinetic

The present tf implementation uses tf2 for its underlying message and data handling.

So, I think the job has already been done.

Ahh ok, thanks, I wasn't sure if this transfer had been made.
