Scanse Sweep ROS Driver and Node

This node is currently publishing a pointcloud2 msg. This is because the Sweep device does not use fixed azimuth intervals. For more details see the Sweep theory of operation. Use sweep2scan.launch for conversion to laserscan msg.

Firmware Compatibility:

Currently, sweep-ros is only compatible with sweep firmware v1.1 or greater.

You can check the firmware version installed on your sweep device by using a serial terminal (see manual) or more easily using the sweep visualizer (see instructions).
