I am trying to use the kinect 360 sensor on the raspberry pi 3B,(in real enviroment), to remotely visualize the point cloud as shown in this link:

What packages are needed?
Thank you

You need to install the Freenect package.

  • First you need to have Linux installed in the Raspberry. Check this article about it.

  • Then include the OSRF repos in your Raspberry Linux system. Check the repos here.

  • Do an update of your packages:
    sudo apt-get update

  • Then type the following to install the packages
    sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-freenect-*

  • Finally, connect the Kinect to the Raspberry and launch the node that generates the topics with images and pointclouds and audios:
    roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch

Let me tell you that having the Kinect with a Raspberry may make your system very slow :wink:

Hi, I don know who to do that:
