Hi, I'm following the steps of Autonomous Driving and I've a problem with Traffic Sign Detection, when i launch this command:

roslaunch turtlebot3_autorace_detect detect_sign.launch mission:=SELECT_MISSION

(and i got it with all missions, intersection for example)

I got this error :

 roslaunch turtlebot3_autorace_detect detect_sign.launch mission:=intersection

... logging to /home/islam/.ros/log/c1a5f2be-e33d-11ec-94f8-af2ee1c316ed/roslaunch-islam-12287.log

You probably installed cv2 via pip, which does not contain any non-free modules.

This topic is discussed there:

People propose the use of:

  • Uninstall:

pip3 uninstall opencv-contrib-python

pip3 uninstall opencv-python

  • And then install:

pip3 install opencv-contrib-python

pip3 install opencv-python

That solved it, Thank you
