Original README from


Velodyne_ is a collection of ROS_ packages supporting Velodyne high definition 3D LIDARs_ .


The master branch normally contains code being tested for the next ROS release. It will not always work with every previous release.

The current master branch works with ROS Kinetic, Jade, and Indigo. It may work with Hydro and Groovy, but that has not been tested recently. To build for Fuerte from source, check out the rosbuild branch instead of master.
