ofxSick is an addon for openFrameworks to interface with SICK laser measurement systems.
The basic interface protocol is implemented by Konrad Banachowicz' LMS1xx library. Because the library uses sockets, it maybe not be possible to compile on non-POSIX systems like Windows.
Some major modifications have been made to the
LMS1xx::getData() method in the LMS1xx library in order to support unusual packet fragmentation and unpredictable latency on OSX 10.8.
Remission and Second Returns
Due to packet fragmentation and unpredictable latency on OSX 10.8, the bandwidth of the data returned by the LMS1xx has been reduced significantly in order to avoid errors. This is done by disabling remission (brightness) and second returns (half-reflected pulses). Right now this can be tweaked by modifying the
ofxSickGrabber and ofxSickPlayer
ofxSick class implements the shared features of grabbing and playing LIDAR data. The main
example/ shows a very simple case of using the
ofxSickGrabber, and the
example-blobs/ shows how to switch between grabbing and playback.
example-blobs/ also works with ofxCv to do blob detection on objects in the scene.
