[Discourse.ros.org] [General] New package for camera tracking!

Florian Friesdorf via ros-users


I'm happy to announce the [look_at_pose](http://wiki.ros.org/look_at_pose) package. We use it to keep a shelf in sight as our robot drives, but it could be used in drones and user interfaces, among other things.

The ROS service takes a current camera pose, a vector to define "up", and the target pose to look at. The response is a new, upright camera pose that's centered on the object of interest. Hopefully the documentation [here](http://wiki.ros.org/look_at_pose) is pretty good.

An example: This camera has a rough initial alignment with the object of interest (the pink cylinder) and it is nearly upside-down. The pose returned from a call to look_at_pose is well-aligned and the camera is upright.

Now with more input checking, a test script that displays the original and new camera frames in RViz, and a bug patch related to matrix inversion. Apologies if the bug confused anybody.
