I followed recognition kitchen--ROS Quick Guide.

It says I need to run:

  roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch

But I want to run object_recognition package in gazebo.

So I found that the pr2_kinect_empty_world.launch file:

  roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_kinect_empty_world.launch

Is pr2_kinect_empty_world.launch contain all the same functionalities of openni_node.launch?

If no, how to simulate the kinect which can be used in package which needs to run openni_node.launch?

Thank you~

there is a openni plugin that pr2 simulation uses to generate topics published by the kinect; it's mostly there, but there are some issues that need to be sorted out.

What's their difference? What issue I need to take care and how? Thank you~
