What type of camera are you using? Webcam or some else?

Actually, the problem is you are not getting the image from webcam, just using image_view can't show you image. You have to get the image on image:=/Image/topic. If you were using usb webcam it would have been much easier but for integrated webcam i am not able to find any package for indigo.

Just download package from this link extract it in your work_space/src run catkin_make and then rosrun webcam_pub webcam_pub.

Then you can use image_view image_view image:=/webcam/image_raw

I think you were missing roscore. What do you want to know about image processing? Do you know openCV?

Ameer Hamza Khan gravatar imageAmeer Hamza Khan ( 2015-12-12 07:18:28 -0500 )edit

yes thats right roscore was missing, now its working, i know opencv a little but think may be i could work with image_proc but it looks like opencv is the only way rights?

fatima gravatar imagefatima ( 2015-12-12 08:20:04 -0500 )edit

Image_proc is only used for image rectification. For general purpose application u should use OpenCV. I suggest to start with this tutorial. Although written for visual studio for windows but you can easily use it in linux. It will give u general intro of openCV.
