I am trying to view the images my robot's cameras are receiving remotely. The following in the command line will bring up a window with the video stream

$ rosrun image_view image_view image:=/stereo/right/image_raw

However I cannot find any information on how to put the "image:=/stereo/right/image_raw" part into a launch file

Alternatively, how can I use image_view in a python node to embed the video in a gui of my design?

I'm using: ROS electric

Ubuntu 11.10

uvc_camera

Tkinter

This is called remapping, and can be done using the remap tag.

You can display images from Python is using OpenCV's imshow function.

here is what I did to get image_view to work from a launch file;

<node name="image_view" pkg="image_view" type="image_view" respawn="false" output="screen">
<remap from="image" to="/usb_cam/image_raw" />
</node>

The question is quite outdated but maybe an alternative approach will help somebody:

  <node pkg="rqt_image_view" type="rqt_image_view" name="image_view_debug" args="/debug_img"/>
