Updating sensor pose and orientation when applying a transform to a point cloud

Maxime Latulippe
Hi,

When applying a rotation/translation to a point cloud, the values of sensor_origin_ and sensor_orientation_ are not automatically updated. What would be the simplest and easiest way to do this using pcl functions? Also, shouldn't that always be done by default?

Thanks,

Maxime

Maxime,

I'm still banging my head to see if that's a bug or a feature. I wonder how much we want to make some of these things
"automatic" for the user. But maybe you're right... if we cannot think of a usecase where preserving the original sensor
6D acquisition pose is needed, we should convert that as well. So for that, it seems that what you've described is a
bug. I would post an issue on http://dev.pointclouds.org so that this doesn't get lost, and one of our developers will
take it from there.

Cheers,
Radu.
