OS: Ubuntu 12.04
ROS: Fuerte
Camera: Bumblebee2 -> svn co ``
Other Software include: Bumblebee2 ROS package, libdc1394-22, Coriander programme.
Other links cheked:

And I can't run bumblebee2 in fuerte. I follow 2 lines: one with the updated package camera1394 like this:

  <!-- name node (and topic) after parameter file -->
  <node pkg="camera1394" type="camera1394_node"
        name="bumblebee2" output="screen">
       file="$(find DemoROS)/launch/bumblebee2.yaml" /> 

and the yaml

# Sample camera parameters for the Bumblebee2
#guid: 08144361026320a0 (defaults to first camera found)
#video_mode: 1024x768_mono #for a single grayscale frame
video_mode: 1024x768_mono16 #for bumblebee2
fps: 15
bayer_pattern: GRBG
bayer_method: Nearest
settings_url: file:///opt/ros/camera_settings/bumblebee_right.yaml
settings_url2: file:///opt/ros/camera_settings/bumblebee_left.yaml
# these all default to automatic settings:
#brightness: 511
#exposure: 256
#gain: 150
shutter: -1
#whitebalance: "2000 2000"

$ roslaunch DemoROS bumblebee2_lsi.launch

This way publish one (image) with both camera data mixed. I try de-interlaced it but I don't know what I am doing wrong. I try with other formats like Format7_mode3 with dynamic_reconfigure pkg and this is the result: (image)

My bumblebee2_lsi program is this:

#include <signal.h>
#include <ros/ros.h>
#include <ros/console.h>
#include <boost/format.hpp>
#include <sensor_msgs/CameraInfo.h>
#include <sensor_msgs/image_encodings.h>
#include <tf/transform_listener.h>
//#include <camera_info_manager/camera_info.h>
#include <camera_info_manager/camera_info_manager.h>
#include <image_transport/image_transport.h>
#include <dynamic_reconfigure/server.h>
#include <dynamic_reconfigure/SensorLevels.h>
//#include "bumblebee2.h"
//#include "bumblebee2/Bumblebee2Config.h"

namespace enc = sensor_msgs::image_encodings;

/** @file

@brief camera1394 is a ROS driver for 1394 Firewire digital cameras.

This is a ROS port of the Player driver for 1394 cameras, using
libdc1394.  It provides a reliable driver with minimal dependencies,
intended to fill a role in the ROS image pipeline similar to the other
ROS camera drivers.

The ROS image pipeline provides Bayer filtering at a higher level (in
image_proc).  In some cases it is useful to run the driver without the
entire image pipeline, so libdc1394 Bayer decoding is also provided.

These questions come up often enough that I wish we could support an "official" ROS bumblebee driver. It's not all that different from the basic camera1394 driver, which I do support. Unfortunately, I have no bumblebee hardware for testing, so I cannot do that myself.

Thanks for the comment ;) Maybe this code help a little to understand the problem: (line 725) and the use of this code here : (line 382)

Pease check our firewire stereo driver, which we are using for bumblebee2 cameras with Fuerte.
