Hi.

I have different frames which I create with the static transform publisher in a launch file, for example:

<launch> <node pkg="tf" type="static_transform_publisher" name="kinect_base_link5" args="0 0 0 0 1.57 0 /frame1 /frame2 100"/>

</launch>

I work with a kinect and get from the kinect_aux node the actuel angle from the tilted position from the kinect back. (cur_tilt_angle) So my question is, is it possible that instead I write a fixed value like 1.57, I get this cur_tilt_angle in the launch file?

Thank you for help.

(I use ROS electric.)

You will need to write a node that listens to that particular topic and publishes your required tf. With a static transform publisher only fixed transforms can be published.

If it is not a topic but a parameter stored in the parameter server, then yes, you can use that parameter and load it to the static transform publisher. Take a look here.

@Miquel Massot@JaRu can you please refer to me an example code where "write a node that listens to that particular topic and publishes your required tf" is implemented.

@Gudjohnson I would take a look at the "Writing a tf broadcaster (C++)" tutorial example, here: http://wiki.ros.org/tf/Tutorials/Writ...
