class mrpt::hwdrivers::CRoboPeakLidar

Interfaces a Robo Peak LIDAR laser scanner.

See the example “samples/RoboPeakLidar_laser_test” and the application “rawlog-grabber” for a ready-to-use application to gather data from the scanner.

 PARAMETERS IN THE ".INI"-LIKE CONFIGURATION STRINGS:
-------------------------------------------------------
  [supplied_section_name]
   COM_port_WIN = COM3
   COM_port_LIN = ttyS0

   pose_z=0
   pose_yaw=0   // Angles in degrees
   pose_pitch=0
   pose_roll=0

   //preview = true // Enable GUI visualization of captured data

   // Optional: Exclusion zones to avoid the robot seeing itself:
   //exclusionZone1_x = 0.20 0.30 0.30 0.20
   //exclusionZone1_y = 0.20 0.30 0.30 0.20

Methods

virtual void initialize()

Attempts to connect and turns the laser on.

Raises an exception on error.

virtual void doProcessSimple(
    bool& outThereIsObservation,
    mrpt::obs::CObservation2DRangeScan& outObservation,
    bool& hardwareError
    )

Specific laser scanner “software drivers” must process here new data from the I/O stream, and, if a whole scan has arrived, return it.

This method MUST BE CALLED in a timely fashion by the user to allow the proccessing of incoming data. It can be run in a different thread safely.

void setSerialPort(const std::string& port_name)

If set to non-empty, the serial port will be attempted to be opened automatically when this class is first used to request data from the laser.

const std::string getSerialPort()

Returns the currently set serial port.

See also:

setSerialPort

virtual bool turnOn()

See base class docs.

virtual bool turnOff()

See base class docs.

bool getDeviceHealth() const

Returns true if the device is connected & operative.

void disconnect()

Closes the comms with the laser.

Shouldn’t have to be directly needed by the user
