Hello everyone,

The calibration tutorial applied to the kinect rgb camera searches for a service that isn't published by the openni driver. This results in

rosrun camera_calibration cameracalibrator.py --size 8x5 --square 0.02994444 image:=/camera/rgb/image_color camera:=/camera

Waiting for service /camera/set_camera_info ...

Service not found

Hasn't anybody used the camera_calibration package to obtain the intrinsic parameters of the kinect camera? I'd need them for the handeye calibration.

cheers

The intrinsic calibration for the Kinect is already available in the Openni driver. This answer describes where to find it.

You'll want to use the 'camera/rgb/camera_info' topic, which gives a sensor_msgs/CameraInfo message.

Use: rosrun camera_calibration cameracalibrator.py --size 8x5 --square 0.02994444 image:=/camera/rgb/image_color camera_info:=/camera ("camera_info:=" instead of "camera:/")

The openni driver does not implement set_camera_info, so you have to tell cameracalibrator.py that it should not rely on it. Just add --no-service-check when running it.

Also, you can check here for more information on calibrating the kinect.
