Hi all,

This question is to clarify something. According to the individual scans are projected into a fixed frame right? So, that means we can readily use the assembled cloud in process like octomap even when the robot is moving. I mean we do not need the robot to stop and acquire the cloud.

Is this correct?

Yes, if the fixed_frame stays fixed during movement (something like /map or /odom).

However, you might not get perfectly matching data depending on the accuracy of whoever produces the fixed_frame transformation.
