Hello everyone,

I am trying to get images from my robot running ROS in a Windows machine to use with Oculus Rift.

I don't know what should be the best way to accomplish this. I thought about using socket, but I had bad experiences in the past with sockets. I would to know if there is a better option to receive images in a Windows machine.

Thank you very much for any help. :)

I don't know what you actually want to do, and it's been a while since they were written, but you might be interested in oculus_rviz_plugins. I seem to remember some users have forked these and updated them for the newer versions of the SDKs.

alternative way: can save image files in directory and then use script or ftp to upload the files to windows machine. 2. use Database, store data in database and then read, it is platform irrelated. 3. still use socket.
