Using ecto_pcl with ROSΒΆ

The ecto_pcl package includes ROS bindings for publishing and subscribing to ROS topics with point clouds.

The syntax for a cloud subscriber is a bit involved as we must first subscribe to a topic using an ecto_pcl_ros cell, and then convert the output of that cell from a sensor_msgs::PointCloud into a pcl::PointCloud. We must be explicit about the format of the generated cloud when doing this conversion, using one of the defined cloud formats such as ecto_pcl.XYZRGB or ecto_pcl.XYZ.
