How to Use Display Disparity on Pioneer3DX

  • Set up:
    1. Required packages:
      • sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros
      • sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-stereo-image-proc
      • sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-image-pipeline
    2. Camera MUST be calibrated
    3. Download launch files on the bottom.
    4. In terminal, within the directory of the file, mv disparity_to_dep.launch /opt/ros/indigo/share/rtabmap_ros/launch
    5. In terminal, within the directory of the file, mv raw_decimate.launch /opt/ros/indigo/share/image_proc/launch && mv resize.launch /opt/ros/indigo/share/image_proc/launch
  • Execution:
    1. On the robot, run the stereo_camera node.
    1. In the new terminal, roscd image_proc && roslaunch raw_decimate.launch
    1. In the new terminal, roscd image_proc && cd launch && roslaunch raw_decimate.launch
      • (worse image) for 10 FPS on the robot and 5 FPS on the server, set decimation_x and decimation_y to value="4" for both left_decimator and right_decimator
      • (better image) for 3.5 FPS on the robot and 2.6 FPS on the server, set decimation_x and decimation_y to value="2" for both left_decimator and right_decimator
    1. On the server/robot, in a new terminal, run ROS_NAMESPACE=camera_crop rosrun stereo_image_proc stereo_image_proc _approximate_sync:=True
    2. If run for the first time on the machine/laptop, adjust the parameters for the disparity map generation (real time): "rosrun rqt_reconfigure rqt_reconfigure"
      • OR add Disparity.cfg (see in bottom) to catkin_ws/src/image_pipeline/stereo_image_proc/cfg
      • ELSE please adjust according to the image of the parameters on the bottom
    3. Optional (disparity to depth -- not tested yet):
      1. On the server, in a new terminal, cd /opt/ros/indigo/share/rtabmap_ros/launch
      2. Run roslaunch rtabmap_ros disparity_to_dep.launch

  1. To view the disparity map alongside the disparity image, use: "rosrun image_view stereo_view stereo:=/camera_crop image:=image_rect"
  2. To view the disparity map alone, use "rosrun image_view disparity_view image:=/camera_crop/disparity"
  3. To view the depth_map use: "rosrun image_view image_view image:=/depth_raw" (HAS NOT BEEN TESTED)
  4. To view pointcloud, use: "rosrun rviz rviz" AND set the Fixed Frame to stereo_camera
