Interfacing Basler Cameras with ROS
Document number: AW001491
The Application Note provides an example of how to interface Basler cameras with an open source Robot Operating System (ROS). The exemplary installation instructions relate to a Linux x86 operating system and to the pylon-ROS-camera driver package that serves as middleware.
ROS is an all open source framework of software libraries and tools that support the building of various robot applications.
Installation of the following software is considered:
- Operating system (a Linux x86 distribution as an example)
- Basler pylon Camera Software Suite for Linux x86 (as an example)
- ROS Robot Operating System (ROS Melodic Morenia is used as an example)
- pylon-ROS-camera driver package.
