Hello everyone,

I am trying to learn Autonomous Cars… I am totally new to these things I am trying to do my self driving rc car(1/10 scale). Like Donkeycar. But i want to realize it with ROS. I got rpi camera V2. I searched internet and just find that i can use rpi camera with ros kinetic. Are there any way to rpi camera with Jetson Nano on ROS. Cause as i can learned i can only install ros melodic to jetson nano.

Now i am using:

Jetson Nano JetPack 4.4 ROS Melodic

My questions are:

1) Can i use ros kinetic with jetson nano 2) Can i use rpi cam with ros melodic 3) There is a node for rpi camera like i said (in ros Kinetic) can i use this node in ros melodic

For me it’s urgent. I would be grateful for any help. Can you help me. Thanks.

For answer who may search for it:

  1. You can only use ROS melodic with Jetson Nano. Maybe you can use another destribution but with docker.(idk how exactly)
  2. If you are searching rpi cam V2 ready to use package you can check -> dusty-nv's github page
  3. You can't cause some packages may not compatible with every version.

Hi guys,

i'm searching aswell for a node for raspi cam v2 for ROS Melodic. But my ROS is currently running on a Raspi 4... @Morgenstern it looks like your link is just for Jetson Nano...

do you guys have an idea?

I would be very grateful:)
