Dear folks, I'm working on a node which has to extract and associate information from both the rgb and depth streams of the Kinect sensor. In order to cope with such streams I'm using the cv_bridge, as suggested in the cv bridge tutorials.

Problem is: if the kinect is placed 1 meter far from a robot, several times, I'm not sure if illumination matters, I have completely wrong measurements, sometimes around 40 meters, some others around 5/6 meters.

Did anyone of you have such issue, or a similar one?? And if so, did you solve the problem?

Thank you all, Taigo

What kind of surface are you looking at? Did you try viewing the depth image in rviz?
