Hi again,

in case that my other question regarding object recognition with only a 2d laser scan available cannot be answered easy enough...

How about any sort of object recognition using vision sensors like from Kinect through TOF cams and all the way down to simple web cams? Are there any close to ready built stacks/packages in ROS Hydromedusa that I could make use of? Up-to-date tutorials about that topic?

Thanks again!

Cheers, Hendrik

OpenCV is a really powerful computer vision library ( and has a whole bunch of tutorials for doing all sorts of interesting things:

ROS has a wrapper/bridge built for communicating with this library (

You can find some tutorials on communicating between the two ends here:
