Hello Pavan,
As per my understanding you are trying to convert a .pcap file to a .ply file.
  • To read point cloud data from “.pcap” format, use 'velodyneFileReader' function
  • To write point cloud data as “.ply” format, use 'pcwrite' function.
As an example, you can execute following commands
veloReader = velodyneFileReader('lidarData_ConstructionRoad.pcap','HDL32E');
ptCld = readFrame(veloReader);
You can refer to the following documentation for more information:
Alternatively, you can try to import the pcap file in Lidar Viewer app and export to ply format.
Hope this helps :)
