# How to leverage the Intel ROS Project

I brought up the Intel ROS Project and don’t know how to test it, port it to the TB3, or leverage it. Intel ROS Project

I installed the Intel ROS Project because the diagram on it home page (see link above) suggested I should be able to use it to do interesting things. It also assures that the Movidius and RealSense APIs work well together. It was difficult to install because of the number of packages and instructions were written using different documentation, installation and test conventions. But I managed to complete that install after a couple false starts.

In the following paragraphs I document installation and test status to provide confidence that the install is promising. I am currently stuck. I don’t know what the next steps are.

INSTALL NOTES

• Movidius and RealSense ROS demos work.
• I had to install the Kobuki message package before I could complete the ROS Moving Object install: ros-kinetic-kobuki-msgs.

ROS MOVE OBJECT START UP

I executed the following in separate terminal windows. They executed without crashing and I could display an interesting rqt_graph.

$roscore$ roslaunch realsense2_camera rs_camera.launch enable_pointcloud:=true enable_sync:=true
$roslaunch object_analytics_launch analytics_movidius_ncs.launch input_points:=/camera/points$ roslaunch moving_object moving_object.launch
$roslaunch object_analytics_visualization rviz.launch  RVIZ DISPLAY rviz displays “No Image” in its Image window. Clearly I have a publisher/subscriber message mismatch. My /camera/realsense2_camera node is publishing /camera/realseanse2_camera_manager/bond. I see nothing in the rqt_graph subscribed to this message. LIST OF NODES $ rosnode list
