SITL with Gazebo and camera feed

(Mads Tilgaard Jensen) #1


I’ve setup Gazebo7 and ROS kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 following this tutorial:
https://github.com/patrickelectric/bluerov_ros_playground .This works perfectly, but I need video feed in order to test some software I’m developing. Is there anyway I can subscribe to the videofeed using Gstreamer or other software?

Best regards

All connection packages with the real ROV will create a video topic that can be used.
Also, if you want to grab it without ROS, take a look in the video class.
