ProAut Radar

Introduction

This package was designed to read messages from the Bosch GPR V1.0 radar using a PEAK-USB converter. This package is not about handling low-level can communication. Therefore it is assumed, that https://wiki.ros.org/socketcan_bridge is already running.

The data from the sensor is published onto 'radar_messages' topic. Additionally, the measurements for each single target are republished as 'can_messages_A' and 'can_messages_B' respectively. For more details see radar_pa_node.

Moreover, it is possible to republish the data through a standard pointcloud on 'radar_pcd'. Please refer to radar2pcd_pa_node.
