Laser reflective surface in gazebo

asked 2015-11-16 15:29:56 -0500 gravatar image


I wanted to simulate an object that could 'redirect' a laser ray. This is to simulate a mirror attached to the laser, that reflects a portion of the scan down, instead of forward like the rest of the rays.

This technique was used to measure the height of of indoor flying drones, like in this image (object marked as 1 and 4):

Is there a way to create an object like (4)? Thank you in advanced for any help!

Has there been an update on this problem? I am also interested in such a feature?

I haven't heard of anyone using mirrors for lasers on Gazebo.

Maybe you can combine two lasers, one pointing forward and the other pointing downwards.
