hi everybody,

I'm trying to launch the live of SVO, but it gives me immediately this type of error:

From the error it looks like you might feed the system color images, but it only is able to process grayscale. Another possibility seems to be that the resolution (image size) stated in your camera_info and your image are not consistent. That would be my first guesses, given the message

Frame: provided image has not the same size as the camera model or image is not grayscale

you could just run the image_proc node to get the grayscale image or write your own subscriber and publisher to convert the rgb image to grayscale

I also encounter the same situation. This is how I solved it :

1) Convert your image to grayscale: frame = cv2.cvtColor(frame1, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY) 2) Give the correct encoding to cv_bridge(in case you are using cv_bridge) : pub.publish(bridge.cv2_to_imgmsg(frame, "mono8")) 3) know your image size with : (frame.shape) and give that frame shape to your camera model yaml file. Hope this helps!!
