How do you store a list of uints in a ROS message? I have a message like:

string frame
string type
uint8 quality
uint8[] a
uint8[] b
uint8[] c
uint8[] d
uint8   width
uint8   height
string data

but when I try to store:

mymsg.a = [1, 2]

I get the error:

ROSSerializationException: field a[] exceeds specified width [uint8]

Why is this?

came across similar problem.

I think it is because python int is 64bit and you are putting it in a array of uint8.

try np.array([1,2]).astype(np.uint8)
