Sick Safevisionary ROS
This is the official ROS driver for the Sick safeVisionary2 cameras.
We use Boost's lock-free data structures in this driver. You can install them with
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev
Build and install
You can either setup a fresh ROS workspace, for instance with
mkdir -p $HOME/sick_ws/src && cd "$_"
or use an existing one.
src folder of that ROS workspace, get the relevant ROS packages
git clone https://github.com/SICKAG/sick_safevisionary_ros1.git
git clone https://github.com/SICKAG/sick_safevisionary_base.git
rosdep install --ignore-src --from-paths ./ -y -r
catkin build for building the workspace. That's more convenient when working with the
sick_safevisionary_base library, which is a non-catkin package and would else require
catkin is part of the
catkin_tools package. You can install it e.g. with
sudo apt-get install python3-catkin-tools
Here's more information about this install.
You can then build everything in the root of the ROS workspace with
catkin config --install
If you used an existing workspace for the new Sick components, you might need
to remove the
build folder first so that you don't mix build spaces with
previous calls to
Each camera must be configured once. The setup is explained here.
Source your local
install/setup.bash and run
roslaunch sick_safevisionary_driver driver_node.launch
