usb_cam ROS2 CI

A ROS2 Driver for V4L USB Cameras

This package is based off of V4L devices specifically instead of just UVC.

For ros1 documentation, see the ROS wiki.

Supported ROS2 Distros and Platforms

All Officially supported Linux Distros and corresponding ROS2 releases are supported. Please create an issue if you experience any problems on these platforms.

Windows: TBD/Untested/Unproven MacOS: TBD/Untested/Unproven

For either MacOS or Windows - if you would like to try and get it working please create an issue to document your effort. If it works we can add it to the instructions here!

Quickstart

This package is still not yet released for any ROS2 Distros yet!

Assuming you have a supported ROS2 distro installed, run the following command to install the binary release:

sudo apt get install ros-<ros2-distro>-usb-cam

Building from Source

Clone/Download the source code into your workspace:

cd /path/to/catkin_ws/src
git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/usb_cam.git

Or click on the green "Download zip" button on the repo's github webpage.

Once downloaded and ensuring you have sourced your ROS2 underlay, go ahead and compile:

cd /path/to/colcon_ws
colcon build
source /path/to/colcon_ws/install/setup.bash

Be sure to source the newly built packages after a successful build. Once sourced, you should be able to run the package in one of three ways, shown in the next section

Running

The usb_cam_node can be ran with default settings, by setting specific parameters either via the command line or by loading in a file. We provide a "default" params file in the usb_cam/config/params.yaml directory to get you started. Also provided is a launch file that should launch the usb_cam_node Node along with a provided node that displays an image topic. The commands to run each of these different ways of starting the node are shown below:

NOTE: you only need to run ONE of the commands below to run the node

ros2 run usb_cam usb_cam_node # this will run the node with default settings (without params file)
ros2 run usb_cam usb_cam_node --ros-args --params-file /path/to/colcon_ws/src/usb_cam/config/params.yaml   # with params file
ros2 launch usb_cam demo_launch.py  # also runs the provided show_images.py script to display the image topic

Documentation

Doxygen files can be found on the ROS wiki.

  • Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set The driver doesn\'t currently work with em28xx based devices as they don\'t allow the framerate to be set directly and the node exits with an error. Changing to a warning allows these devices to be used.

  • Merge pull request #24 from rjw57/do-not-touch-parameters-unless-asked do not modify parameters unless explicitly set
  • do not modify parameters unless explicitly set The contrast, saturation, brightness, sharpness and focus parameters were recently added to usb_cam. This caused a regression (sigproc/robotic_surgery#17) whereby the default settings for a webcam are overridden in all cases by the hard-coded defaults in usb_cam. In the absence of a know good set of \"default\" values, leave the parameters unset unless the user has explicitly set them in the launch file.

  • Merge pull request #25 from blutack/patch-1 Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set
  • Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set The driver doesn\'t currently work with em28xx based devices as they don\'t allow the framerate to be set directly and the node exits with an error. Changing to a warning allows these devices to be used.
  • Update README.md
  • Merge pull request #24 from rjw57/do-not-touch-parameters-unless-asked do not modify parameters unless explicitly set
  • do not modify parameters unless explicitly set The contrast, saturation, brightness, sharpness and focus parameters were recently added to usb_cam. This caused a regression (sigproc/robotic_surgery#17) whereby the default settings for a webcam are overridden in all cases by the hard-coded defaults in usb_cam. In the absence of a know good set of \"default\" values, leave the parameters unset unless the user has explicitly set them in the launch file.

  • Merge pull request #25 from blutack/patch-1 Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set
  • Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set The driver doesn\'t currently work with em28xx based devices as they don\'t allow the framerate to be set directly and the node exits with an error. Changing to a warning allows these devices to be used.
  • Update README.md
  • Merge pull request #24 from rjw57/do-not-touch-parameters-unless-asked do not modify parameters unless explicitly set
  • do not modify parameters unless explicitly set The contrast, saturation, brightness, sharpness and focus parameters were recently added to usb_cam. This caused a regression (sigproc/robotic_surgery#17) whereby the default settings for a webcam are overridden in all cases by the hard-coded defaults in usb_cam. In the absence of a know good set of \"default\" values, leave the parameters unset unless the user has explicitly set them in the launch file.

0.1.13 (2014-12-02)

  • Merge pull request #25 from blutack/patch-1 Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set
  • Warn rather than error if framerate can\'t be set The driver doesn\'t currently work with em28xx based devices as they don\'t allow the framerate to be set directly and the node exits with an error. Changing to a warning allows these devices to be used.
  • Update README.md
  • Merge pull request #24 from rjw57/do-not-touch-parameters-unless-asked do not modify parameters unless explicitly set
  • do not modify parameters unless explicitly set The contrast, saturation, brightness, sharpness and focus parameters were recently added to usb_cam. This caused a regression (sigproc/robotic_surgery#17) whereby the default settings for a webcam are overridden in all cases by the hard-coded defaults in usb_cam. In the absence of a know good set of \"default\" values, leave the parameters unset unless the user has explicitly set them in the launch file.
