Currently I'm using fuerte on 12.04 ubuntu. I have been using cameras (with gazeboroscamera plugin) successfully. However for it to work, I had to modify the parser_deprecated.cc file : from




Apparently parserdeprecated.cc only supports depth camera. My question is am I missing some other way to successfully use cameras (URDFs) without modifying parserdeprecated.cc ? Is there away to actually get the system to use parser.cc (instead of parser_deprecated)? Does depth camera also provide electro optical data as well as depth data?

parser_deprecated will be fixed in the next couple days. Thanks for the input.

SDF is the preferred method to specify sensors, models, and other object in a Gazebo world. Files specified in SDF use the parser.cc class. However, ROS has no hooks for SDF.

The depth camera provides RGB and depth data. If more/different information is required, then we should create a new sensor based on a specification.
