Lidar Integration on Vrep

Post by suchetaroy03 » 23 Jun 2018, 19:53

Hello all,

I'm a beginner in working with V-rep. I'm trying to get the Lidar (ydlidar G4) to show point cloud data on Vrep. Please let me know how to step by step configure the hardware.

Thank you!

you will have to check with the manufacturer. We don't know that hardware. BEst is probably to write a V-REP plugin that communicates with your sensor and forwards the data to V-REP. Have a look at the demo model Models/components/sensors/velodyne VPL-16.ttm for instance, and the plugin that controlls it (there is however no connection to the real hardware in that case): v_repExtVision
