Currently my team is deciding on a make a model of ptz camera to attach on our robot. My colleague narrowed down to a model which is ONVIF Ver. 2.2 compliant. As Axis is one of the founding member of ONVIF, i was wondering if the AXIS_camera package in ros allows us to communicate and control other ONVIF compliant camera?

This is a question better addressed to Axis than to the ROS community, although it is possible that someone here may know the answer.

Hi zenifed! Are there any updates? I would be interested to know if the axis_camera package can be used for my ONVIF IP camera. Thanks!

Regarding,, line 41, 42 and the import statments at the beginig of file it's seem that this lib use cgi 'GET' resquests to drive and read PTZ information.

Onvif is based on SOAP message... therefore, In my own opinion it won't works.

I just had a quick look on it so I might be wrong.
