These are the ros drivers for running the Pt Grey (FLIR) cameras that use the Spinnaker SDK. This code has been tested with various Point Grey Blackfly S (BFS) cameras.
These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.
The pre-requisites for this repo include:
- ros-kinetic-image-transport * libunwind-dev
# after installing spinnaker verify that you can run your cameras with SpinView # after installing ros, install other pre-requisites with: sudo apt install libunwind-dev ros-kinetic-cv-bridge ros-kinetic-image-transport
To install the spinnaker drivers:
bash mkdir -p ~/spinnaker_ws/src cd spinnaker_ws/src git clone https://github.com/neufieldrobotics/spinnaker_sdk_camera_driver.git cd ~/spinnaker_ws/ catkin_make source ~/spinnaker_ws/devel/setup.bash # add this to ~/.bashrc to make this permanent
Running the drivers
Modify the params/test_params.yaml file replacing the cam-ids and master cam serial number to match your camera's serial number. Then run the code as:
roslaunch spinnaker_sdk_camera_driver acquisition.launch # Test that the images are being published by running rqt_image_view
