This looks like an issue with sourcing. When the instructions say "in a sourced terminal," they mean you must first run:

source ~/your_autoware_workspace/devel/setup.bash

Thank you for the information.
But Already I tried it and Does not solve.
I'm using the following command and setup.bash, is there a problem?

cd /home/mypc/
source devel/setup.bash (Details is below)
roslaunch autoware_camera_lidar_calibrator camera_lidar_calibration.launch

#!/usr/bin/env bash
# generated from catkin/cmake/templates/
# source from same directory as this file
_CATKIN_SETUP_DIR=$(builtin cd "dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}"" > /dev/null && pwd)

You should not cd this file but source it instead:

source /home/mypc/ source devel/setup.bash

Also, what command are you using to build your workspace?

I tried below. But does not solve.
source ~/your_autoware_workspace/devel/setup.bash
source /home/mypc/ source devel/setup.bash

Create the workspace by the following method.
$ mkdir -p

I referred to the following.

Do not use the build folder in your workspace. You do not need anything from the build folder, only the devel folder.

To build:

$ cd ~
$ mkdir -p
$ wget -O ""
$ vcs import src <
$ rosdep update
$ rosdep install -y --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro $ROS_DISTRO
$ AUTOWARE_COMPILE_WITH_CUDA=1 colcon build --cmake-args -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

To run intrinsic calibration:

$ cd ~/
$ source devel/setup.bash
$ rosrun autoware_camera_lidar_calibrator --square SQUARE_SIZE --size MxN image:=/image_topic

After this, continue with instructions from

Thank you for the information.

"To build" is pass.
But "To run intrinsic calibration:" is Error

$ cd ~/  
$ source devel/setup.bash  
bash: devel/setup.bash: No such file or directory.

The contents of the folder are as follows.

The source folder certainly does not exist.
Is it a matter of installation?

@ken_koba please do source install/setup.bash

instead of sourcing from the devel folder

Sorry, yes, @sgermanserrano is correct. I forgot we build with colcon instead of catkin.

@sgermanserrano,@Josh Whitley
Thank you for the information.

The file I'm using is sample2's extrinsic.bag.
