Is there a two-dimensional contour scanner in ros, such as Mi Iridium?

Hello everyone, I am a newbie. I want to do a simulation with ros. Use a laser contour scanner (such as a two-dimensional laser scanner from Germany Mi-Iridium, which is a very accurate instrument) to scan a cylinder. Then, a robotic arm is used to convert the two-dimensional point cloud into a three-dimensional point cloud for fitting the spatial parameters of the cylinder. I would like to ask if there is any relevant simulation sensor for ros.Thank you very much!

As this is all simulated (ie: zero sensor noise by default), I would guess any line-like scanner sensor would do. So you could perhaps try and see whether a depth camera configured for a single line or even a laser scanner would work.

Btw: this question may be better posted on, as it's really about virtual sensors and what is supported by Gazebo.

Thank you very much. I really don't know about this website. I take a closer look. gravatar image  ( 2020-03-23 20:40:11 -0500 )edit
