PlayStation4 stereo camera package for ROS
- This package is experimental and not completed.
- You need to hack (cut and solder) the PS4 camera's cable. It may damage your device. Do it at your own risk.
- The PS4 camera is USB 3.0 only and is not compatible with USB 2.0 systems.
You need a ps4eye camera PlayStation Camera CUH-ZEY1J
You need to hack the cable. See PS4eye.
You may need newer linux kernel. Kernel version 3.17.3 is OK. 3.16.0 is NG.
If you are using ubuntu, please check this page to update kernel
You'll need Pyusb 1.0 or the script executed in the udev rules will silently fail. sudo pip install --pre pyusb
- Run create_udev_rules. Enter sudo password to place /etc/udev/rules.d/91-ps4eye.rules. You need this step only once.
$ rosrun ps4eye create_udev_rules
Plug your ps4eye to USB 3.0 port.
Check if you can obtain the image from ps4 camera by webcam software (cheese, camorama, etc).
Run stereo.launch. DEVICE option is used specify video device. You can bring up stereo viewer if viewer option is true.
$ roslaunch ps4eye stereo.launch DEVICE:=/dev/video0 viewer:=true
- If you want to run the viewer individually, use this command.
$ rosrun image_view stereo_view stereo:=/stereo image:=image_rect_color
- Now you can see disparity image from the stereo camera. Done!
