Synchronize throttling

Does the throttle node under topic_tools support synchronized throttling? I have a stereo camera and I'm logging left/image_rect, right/image_rect and the relevant camera info topics. Is there an easy way to log at a slower rate and keep all the messages in sync?

Unfortunately topic_tools does not support synchronized throttling. Can you open a ticket to make sure this gets tracked?

I don't have an easier solution for you than hand-rolling a node to subscribe to the four topics, synchronized, and republish them at a slower rate.

Just to save you a tiny bit of rewrite time, if you look in I do the same thing (subscribe, synchronize, republish) for the PR2's narrow and wide stereo cameras in throttle_stereo.cpp . I also wrote a modified version of rxbag's that does throttled recording of a list of topics at different rates from (Python) code, which is in grasp_playpen/src/grasp_playpen, in case that's useful to you.

Take a look at rgbd_throttle node in this package: ros_utils

I updated the ros_utils link, the other link didn't work
