pylon Camera Driver for the Robot Operating System
What is ROS?
ROS is an open source framework of software libraries and tools designed to support the development of various robotic applications. ROS provides the development tools, algorithms, and drivers for a variety of robotics platform projects. It is capable of running a large number of executable programs in parallel and having them exchange data synchronously or asynchronously. In practice, the data are generally sensor queries, the results of which can be processed to trigger robotic actions. Sensors used in robotics include single information and array detectors. Industrial cameras are also increasingly being used for robotics applications.
Basler Camera Driver for ROS 1 and ROS 2
To enable Basler's GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras to work within the ROS framework, Basler offers the new "pylon-ROS-Camera" package. It is available for free download under a BCD license on GitHub.
Basler GigE Vision and USB3 Vision Cameras
ROS 2, e.g.ROS2 Galactic Geochelone
ROS 1 (Legacy), e.g. ROS Kinetic Kame or ROS Indigo Igloo
Basler pylon Camera Software Suite 6.2 or newer for Linux x86 or Linux ARM
More information about coupling Basler's GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras with ROS 2 using the pylon-ROS-camera package can be found in the Application Notes: Interfacing Basler Cameras with ROS.
