Do we have a ROS package for Kinect for XBOX One camera Sensor?

I have a microsoft Kinect XBOX ONE camera. Its model number is 1595. I tried using http://wiki.ros.org/openni_camera and followed the below link to install the driver for the sensor .https://www.20papercups.net/programming/kinect-on-ubuntu-with-openni/ But I am getting error " [ INFO] [1560605246.718198733]: No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected" from the terminal when I am executing "roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch" I tired lsusb and I can see the Microsoft sensor detected there.

Then I tired a different package from "https://github.com/code-iai/iai_kinect2" . I installed libfreenect2 and this combination worked well for me. But I am not able to get the depth image when I am using this new driver.

My intention is to use the turtlebot follower [ http://wiki.ros.org/turtlebot_follower]. But in this package they have used kinect 360 camera and the package is not working with my new Kinect Xbox one camera.

If I go with iai_kinect2 package, what are the modifications to be made on turtlebot_follower? I am bit confused with the depth topics publishing from the kinect xbox one sensor.

Thanks in advance for the help
