I'm using the Intel Aero Ready to Fly drone with R200 included. I'm a newbie and I'm wondering how i can determine the distance to the closest object? I already installed pyrealsense and there are a lot of usefull commandos but I don't figure out what the best way is to determine these distance? I would think of taking a RGBD frame with the camera and looking at the depth pixels. The depth pixel with the smallest value is the closest. And then using a threshold like 1 meter to have a box approximation for the object?
Thanks on advance

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero platform.
We have received your request and are currently in the process of investigating the issue.
We will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience.
This question is more specific to RealSense than Aero and can be better addressed by the RealSense community.
However, you can follow the instructions in the following Github to install and run the example code.
I would advice you to install Ubuntu as it has more tools available for development.
