Overview

This package contains a GUI to help users extract data from bag files.

Main features are:

  • Export topics to CSV files, by default each topic goes into one CSV file but it is also possible to export one merged CSV file
  • Export H264 encoded videos from sensor_msgs/Image and sensor_msgs/CompressedImage topics (8 bits images with 1 or 3 channels only).
  • Progress bar to display the progress of the export
  • Ability to export only a portion of a bag file (eg: from second 25 to second 60)
  • Ability to change the video frame rate when exporting the video
  • Ability to cancel exporting video/CSV

The software is user oriented so it is very easy to use and features a desktop launcher when installed.
