Hello everyone I have created a gazebo environment and placed kinect sensor model in that and i can see kinect RGB and depth image in RVIZ. It also changes when i move my model in it but now I want to control the position and orientation of kinect sensor in gazebo by external generated velocity or pose commands so that i can generate different sequences of images (RGB + Depth) of an environment. Is it possible to do that without integrating it on any robot? Can anyone guide me to the steps how i should do that or point me to tutorials which can help me to learn.
