Intel RealSense Camera on ROS

The complete release is here, but today we announced our collaboration with Intel to bring ROS support to the Intel RealSense Camera. (Related article on Venturebeat here).

The announcement was made during Intel CEO Brian Krzanich’s opening keynote at the Intel Developer Forum this morning.  Our hope is that this work will make the Intel RealSense Camera more accessible to the worldwide robotics community by developing a wrapper for ROS. The wrapper will allow developers to make use of the longer range Intel RealSense Camera, which is ideal for sensing the environment.

A fleet of Relay robots, our state-of-the-art robot designed for autonomous delivery of items between people, are on site during the course of the Intel Developer Forum this week.
