How to use pylon_camera to capture and publishing multiple GigE camera?

Hi~ I has more than three cameras need to capture. I can capture one camera by setting static ip in both network card port/camera, but I have no idea how to capture other camera by pylon_camera. Or is there has other ros package can do this?

How to use pylon_camera to capture and publishing multiple GigE camera?

Hi~ I has more than three cameras need to capture. I can capture one camera by setting static ip in both network card port/camera, but I have no idea how to capture other camera by pylon_camera. Or is there has other ros package can do this?

(update) Setting camera ID can let pylon_cmaera capture specific camera, but it still can't capture multiple cameras. Both camera is capture by pylon_camera_node, but using same node name and topic name, then first camera will be shoutdown. Anybody has solution for this case?

I testing result is shown in below:

first camera

$ rosrun pylon_camera pylon_camera_node _device_user_id:=itri_camera_01 _frame_rate:=30 _image_encoding:="bayer_rggb8" _shutter_mode:=global _mtu_size:=9000 _brightness:=100 _brightness_continuous:=true brightness is given and has value 100 brightness is continuous

second camera

$ rosrun pylon_camera pylon_camera_node _device_user_id:=itri_camera_02 _frame_rate:=30 _image_encoding:="bayer_rggb8" _shutter_mode:=global _mtu_size:=9000 _brightness:=100 _brightness_continuous:=true brightness is given and has value 100 brightness is continuous
