I am trying to achieve stereo vision with 2x FLIR Blackfly GigE cameras.

As far as I know, the stream capabilities of the video_stream_opencv package are limited to files only and are not working for a continuous stream.

How can i publish a stream of the cameras to use it with stereo_image_proc?

Ubuntu Mate 18.04 // ROS melodic

Thanks & regards

Hi, Did you find the solution to your previous question." unable to detect GigE camera [closed]". The thread is closed, but I have the same issue and looking for the solution. I would appreciate if you could share anything related to that question.

Thank you, Sudip

You might want to check this package out that handles the control of FLIR cameras:

You can either just use this or at least use it to get an idea of how to do it yourself :)
