IWR6843ISK: ROS point cloud visulaizer and getting live data

Part Number: IWR6843ISK

Hello everybody,

I want to use the ROS point cloud visualizer and I want the plotted data for further use. How can I get the live data plotted?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks and regards,

Aleena N A

  • Hello,

    You may have to modify the  ROS based implementation to do this.

    Please look at the ROS driver and  understand the constructs that parse the relevant information  which could be then saved for future use.

    Thank you,


  • Aleena:

    Please use the instructions as described in the user guide below:

    ROS Driver User Guide

    This guide will show how to visualize the point cloud data using rviz. rviz though is just subscribing to the topic that the mmwave ROS driver is publishing to, so if you have another node that wants to subscribe to that same topic then you are free to do so.

    Best regards,
