Hi there.

I'm working with the Kinect in ROS. Had anyone subscribed to /camera/ir/image_raw ? because I get black screen when I launch this command in the shell:

$> rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/ir/image_raw

and how to subscribe to it using c++ program like that : what should I put instead of mono8 ? (Raw uint16 IR image data is given by the topic)

void imageCallbackir(const sensor_msgs::ImageConstPtr& msg)
    cv_bridge::CvImagePtr cv_ptr;

        cv_ptr = cv_bridge::toCvCopy(msg, sensor_msgs::image_encodings::MONO8);


    catch (cv_bridge::Exception& e)
        ROS_ERROR("cv_bridge exception: %s", e.what());

    cv::imshow("OpenCV viewer Kinect ir", cv_ptr->image);


Thank you.

Info? What sensor? What software? What OS? What are you launching?

I had mention that in my question, I'm using /camera/ir/image_raw And it's the only topic for that

I use the package :roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch and then I launch the topic
