Updating sensor pose and orientation when applying a transform to a point cloud
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?
Re: Updating sensor pose and orientation when applying a transform to a point cloud
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.
