  • Known Issues with mmWave Industrial Tool Box Release 1.6.2 , 2.0.0 :


    Project: TI ROS Point Cloud Visualizer Lab (aka TI mmWave ROS Driver) Version 1.1, 1.2

    File: <ros_workspace>/ti_mmwave_rospkg/mmWave_nodelets.xml (The <ros_workspace> is usually ~/catkin_ws)

    Error: The <depend>  tag on line 14 is closed incorrectly as shown.






    In the file ~/catkin_ws/src/ti_mmwave_rospkg/mmWave_nodelets.xml:








    and restart the visualizer using the roslaunch command.

    Problem Statement

    Sub zones cannot be created with the Demo Visualization software.


    After defining the sub zones inside the visualizer setup screen, the sub zones fail to appear while the demo is running.

    Otherwise, the fixed Visualizer will be available at the beginning of May.
