Endorsed by Curators:
There seems to be an electronic sensor these days for each of our human sensors: sight, sound, smell, touch, and even an electronic tongue! For our next meetup we are going to bring together as many different sensors as we can and have and old fashioned "show and tell" session where a sensor owner comes up to the front and tells us about it.
We will try to answer questions like: What does it measure? What ROS topics does it provide? Can it be ROS'ified? How long it has been around? How much does it cost? How do you connect it to other hardware? Is performance or bandwidth a concern? How confident can we be in the output?
Here is what we will "Show and Tell" so far:
Intel Euclid Sensor and Development Kit (JDQ)
RPLIDAR A2 360 Laser Scanner (JDQ)
Nortek DVL1000 Doppler Velocity Log (Cellula Robotics)
Imagenex 881L Profiling Sonar(Cellula Robotics)
Advanced Navigation Spatial FOG Fiber Optic Gyro(Cellula Robotics)
Xaxxon Lidar360 Laser ScannerPrototype (Xaxxon)
Note: This is not a vendor promo. It is users sharing with users! If you have a sensor to share, let Jon (Organizer) know.
