mrpt::hwdrivers::CImageGrabber_dc1394 Class Reference

Detailed Description

A class for grabing images from a IEEE1394 (Firewire) camera using the libdc1394-2 library.

See the constructor for the options when opening the camera. Notice that you may have to carefully set the resolution, framerate and color_mode. See the verbose parameter of the constructor, which can display a list of supported modes in your camera.

This class is able to manage any Firewire cameras, including Stereo or multi-cameras in general, so this can be used to open the Bumblebee camera (not tested yet).

A static method (CImageGrabber_dc1394::enumerateCameras) is provided to enumerate all existing cameras and their properties. It can be used to find the GUID of the desired camera, then open it at the constructor.

Note
This class requires MRPT compiled with "libdc1394-2" (Only works under Linux for now) and "opencv".
In Linux you may need to execute "chmod 666 /dev/video1394/ * " and "chmod 666 /dev/raw1394" for allowing any user R/W access to firewire cameras.
[New in MRPT 1.3.0] Length of ring buffer is now configurable via TCaptureOptions_dc1394::ring_buffer_size

bool CImageGrabber_dc1394::getObservation ( mrpt::obs::CObservationImage out_observation)

Grab an image from the opened camera (for monocular cameras).

Parameters
out_observationThe object to be filled with sensed data.
Note
This may be blocking when using software trigger and no frame is available yet. Ensure trigger before getObservation() or take into account that this call may block.
Returns
false on any error, true if all go fine.
