image_transport_plugins: compressed_image_transport | theora_image_transport

Package Summary

Documented

A set of plugins for publishing and subscribing to sensor_msgs/Image topics in representations other than raw pixel data. For example, for viewing a stream of images off-robot, a video codec will give much lower bandwidth and latency. For low frame rate tranport of high-definition images, you might prefer sending them as JPEG or PNG-compressed form.

Documentation

image_transport_plugins contains plugins to image_transport for sending sensor_msgs/Image topics in compressed representations. Its contents include:

  • compressed_image_transport is a plugin providing JPEG and PNG compression of still images. Most useful for low-framerate/discontinuous image sources (e.g. a polled camera), or when lossless compression (PNG) is required.

  • theora_image_transport is a plugin that compressed image topics using the Theora video codec. Useful for live video feeds.

These transports will only be available if the plugins are built on your system! On Ubuntu, they are included in the ros-<distro>-image-transport-plugins deb for each distribution. If building from source, you must explicitly build the image_transport_plugins stack.

Stability

As of Diamondback, this stack has a stable ROS API.
