Hi, I am trying to design/built Remotely controllable (over an internet) ROS based Rover using Raspberry Pi 4, I am new to ROS/ROS2. Would like to know if I can livestream video from Rover mounted Camera to Controller App. If I use Raspberry Pi 4 which has 2 camera interfaces, can I switch between them. Even better Can I use together to stream live from both camera (1st Regular & 2nd Thermal/IR camera)

The idea is I want to monitor remote facility from home using Rover with some app, while doing this I want to see whats is ahead/around of a Rover through mounted cameras.

ROSBRIDGE and robotweb tools can be used to build a web based interface for remote control but I can't say if can you get all that done on a RPi 4. I've set up something very similar to what you've described but the RPi is used only for video and I use a laptop for running the web interface and navigation.

My hunch is that RPi can't handle that load but it's only a hunch. Navigation and webserver with video feed loads the laptop better than 50%.

Here is a couple links about my example of remote interface on ROS1.

I saw a question recently about something called RVIZWEB or WEBRVIZ or something similar so that might be worth looking into.
