smartek_camera ROS package
ROS drivers for Smartek Vision GigE Cameras. The following cameras have been tested and are known to work:
- Giganetix GC1291CP
The driver has been tested with ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit.
Another prerequisite is having the
timesync class in your Catkin workspace.
Note: The "Driver Installation" section of the SDK installation guide has to be repeated after every kernel update!
The package is still under development, i.e. it has not been released into official ROS distributions yet, so "install" it into your ROS workspace following the standard ROS procedure:
- clone this repo into the
srcsubfolder of your workspace
- from your workspace root, invoke
catkin build(if you are using catkin tools, which is highlly recommended)
Testing the package

- if necessary, run
