Hi, I was trying to do BLOB tracking using a stereo camera at a fixed distance. But for that cmvision package is required. Since cmvision is only released for ROS hydro, is there any way to run it on ROS kinetic?

The package cmvision has been released only for ROS Hydro. If you still want to use it on another ROS distro, you should build it from sources. This seems to be a fork of the cmvision package, modified to work on ROS Indigo, and it might work on ROS Kinetic, not sure though. Please also refer to #q254172 for more info.

Next get this cmvision package:

Hardest part is getting dependencies installed. I found this link helpful:
