v4l2stereo and Minoru stereo webcam integrated with ROS

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Minoru is an inexpensive stereo webcam that can now be used with ROS. Bob Mottram recently updated the v4l2stereo library so you can now use both the library and the Minoru camera easily with ROS, as the video below demonstrates. The v4l2stereo library also integrates well with OpenCV.

You can find instructions on the Sentience site on how to easily remove the commercial packaging around the Minoru sensor, as well as instructions on how to use it with ROS.
