Hi there i am using autoware in docker, my ros distro is melodic and i want to the calibration tool kit in order to calibrate my lidar and camera. However on the GUI there is no calibration tool kit as seen in the official Autoware documentation. I am new to ros and Autoware and i am not sure if there is any way around this? Has anyone had this issue before, if so please could you tell me how you solved this problem.

Thank you in advance.

Could you calibrate the camera?

If you follow the instructions outlined below you will be able to do it.

When you run the command:  rosrun autoware_camera_lidar_calibrator --square SQUARE_SIZE --size MxN image:=/image_topic make sure you change the square size and size.

Once you have made the camera intrinsic file you will need to use it and create the camera-lidar extrinsic calibration.

If you follow these instructions you will calibrate and save the file needed in your calibration publisher and points image which can be found on the sensing page.

I run the command rosrun autoware_camera_lidar_calibrator --square SQUARE_SIZE --size MxN image:=/image_topic but in the window that appear i do not find anything to do, there is a camera stream, but when I move the cardboard, there is no change, nothing happens.

I am following this tutorial:

And for the camera intrinsic part: I do not understand what the second step "Play a rosbag or stream from a camera in the selected topic name." means? could you please elaborate it. I appreciate your help. Thank you.
