2012-07-11 20:35:13 -0500 answered a question rxbag extraction of frames

Found it!

In order to use rxbag (much more efficient than the extract_image node => did not extract all the images of my bags files) you have to :

1°) select with your mouse the length of your timeline (a slightly cyan color show up as you select it)

2°) play your bag file (let it run)

3°) select the view "image"

4°) click on the button on the right of the text "frame%04d.png"

5°) And here normaly pop's up an another window that offers you to save all the frames

2012-07-06 01:46:41 -0500 commented answer rxbag extraction of frames

I knew that technique but it seems that it does not extract all the images when you saved them with a specific frame rate. So if you don't recompile the all extract_images.cpp with the specific framerate it does not work well. That's why I was looking for an another solution at this problem.

2012-07-05 23:28:56 -0500 asked a question rxbag extraction of frames

Hello everyone !

I was wondering is there is any steps to follow in order to save all the frames that I put into a rosbag on my computer with rxbag.

I noticed that there is a button "save frames" when you open it with the following : "View (by type) -> sensor_msgs/Image->stereo/left/image_rect "

I'm able to "select" the frames or should I say the Timeline in the default menu of rxbag (because it's written at the bottom of the image_viewer that it "Save frames from selected region") but it seems to have no effect when I click on the "save frames" button.

any hints ?

Best regards

2012-04-18 10:33:31 -0500 asked a question How to subscribe & synchronize to two images topics

Hi all !

Now with my own camera driver (thanks to all of you) I'm able to run stereo_image_proc and obtain disparity and corrected images.

Now I'm facing a little problem that I'm sure was already solved.

I would like , with the stereo rectified images, to make a stereo matching in OpenCV.

How can I created a node that subscribe to 2 image topics at the same time with the same callback method that will convert the message_image to an OpenCV image with CVbridge.

I know how to convert images and do all the stuff with it thanks to this tutorial http://www.ros.org/wiki/cv_bridge/Tutorials/UsingCvBridgeToConvertBetweenROSImagesAndOpenCVImages

But I don't know how to do it with two images topics to subscribe to :)!

I did a little search within the stereo_image_proc node (with the disparity.cpp )how they manage to do that (with the camera_info too) but the on-demand option do not suit me at all. However, since my camera are not very well synchronized (I use approximate_sync because of an arduino external trigger) I 'll also need to sync these two with the ros.time and their according time stamp ! (Or at least check if they'll be approximatly synced !

So I'm asking you is there any tutorials about it ? or do you know a way to do it simply ?

Regards

Thanks

2012-04-16 23:37:12 -0500 answered a question stereo_proc NO subscription so NO stereo_images

I figure out what was wrong according to my second update.

It was my driver that has something wrong.

I was setting roi.x_offset and roi.y_offset to 16 instead of 0 in order to have a 640x480 image instead of a 640x512. But I forgot that with these cameras it's done automatically by the hardware of the cameras.

Thanks for the help.

2012-04-16 21:47:10 -0500 answered a question cameracalibrator.py GUI does not start

Hi,

There is two things you should try :

First : I see that you type image:/usb_cam but It should be for remapping image:=/usb_cam with the "=" !

Then I did not see what you have set for your camera since it seems that you have paste the answer of you terminal right after you camera:=/ command

So to complete your command line do a rostopic list as follow

vvittori@delos:~/ros_workspace/stereo_robust_matching$ rostopic list
/camera/camera_info
/camera/image_raw
/camera/image_raw/compressed
/camera/image_raw/compressed/parameter_descriptions
/camera/image_raw/compressed/parameter_updates
/camera/image_raw/theora
/camera/image_raw/theora/parameter_descriptions
/camera/image_raw/theora/parameter_updates
/cameraUEYE_node/parameter_descriptions
/cameraUEYE_node/parameter_updates
/rosout
/rosout_agg

and then set the command line as follow (in my exemple /camera/image_raw is my image and /camera is my camera name )

rosrun camera_calibration cameracalibrator.py --size 8x6 --square 0.108 image:=/camera/image_raw camera:=/camera

So for you it should be I gess

rosrun camera_calibration cameracalibrator.py --size 10x7 --square 0.022  image:=/usb_cam/image_raw camera:=/usb_cam

Oh thanks Patrick I didn't notice that part in the wiki page ! I was still block at the rosnode info stereo/proc results that they give us.

Anyway I've tried what you told me with the following command line (I have change stereo_test to stereo in my launch file)

ROS_NAMESPACE=stereo rosrun stereo_image_proc stereo_image_proc __name:=PROC

and

rosrun image_view stereo_view stereo:=/stereo image:=image_rect

as written in the wiki page. Then, I did see what you told me that right after I launch the previous command it subscribed at

and yet I had the following error that occured :

It was a "test" choice but I think that it is not a big deal as long as you specified it in the ROS_NAMESPACE . I maybe wrong I'll check it !

2012-04-13 03:55:10 -0500 asked a question stereo_proc NO subscription so NO stereo_images

Hi everybody

I was wondering if someone has ever seen something like that.

I'm using two uEye USB camera with a personnal arduino trigger. Everything works fine. The calibration setup is OK. But when I try to launch the stereo_proc node, I can clearly see with rxgraph (or rosnode info) that stereo/proc as no subscriptions. And according to the stereo_image_proc tutorial I should have


Subscriptions:

  • /stereo/left/image_raw [sensor_msgs/Image]
  • /stereo/left/camera_info [sensor_msgs/CameraInfo]

  • /stereo/right/image_raw [sensor_msgs/Image]

  • /stereo/right/camera_info [sensor_msgs/CameraInfo]

And I'm thinking that's why I can not go further with the my stereo bench.

Here is my launch file.

<launch>
 <!-- first camera and associated image pipeline -->

2012-04-13 02:23:49 -0500 answered a question Stereo pair of 1394 cameras does't generate disparity

Hi !

I had the same issue once with my Ueye camera (USB) and because my synchonisation was not that good I had to use at the end of the calibration command line the following argument:

--approximate = 0.1

Thing that you have put too in your command line. But try a different number !

If you want more information about this option see http://www.ros.org/wiki/camera_calibration at 4.1.1

Besides I don't know if it's recommended but you do not need the stereo_image_proc node to make your calibration.
