Point Cloud Fixed

GroG's picture

Raver1975 pointed out that the PointCloud was broken !  I looked into and found a simple naming issue - its fixed, but some other thing I noticed was the abismal performance of the actual display.  The root cause of that known issue is it currently uses Java3D which has been a dead project for years.

New Build Server !

Tinhead, the super-vampire robot builder has created a raspberry pi bot which will stream off video from a webcam mounted on the pi to his PC. The PC will consume the video stream and process it in OpenCV then call back to the Pi bot control messages.  Distributed Robotics Rock !
