Hello, we are trying to get cameras published into ROS and we are encountering some difficulties.
For example it seems that nv_ros is not working currently on DRIVE OS 5.2.0 on our AGX Xavier DevKit and that all the ros packages are actually empty and useless. Also the documentation for nvros has disappeared from the DRIVE OS 5.2.0 documentation but the ros examples are still available in the SDK manager. It’s very confusing.

Is there any working node examples for ROS Melodic or ROS kinetic available somewhere ? So we could base our own nodes on them.

Thanks a lot.

Hi @maxandre.ogeret ,

Please refer to GitHub - NVIDIA/dw-ros: ROS cross-compilation with DriveWorks and the sample applications in DriveWorks to implement your own ROS packages. Thanks.

Thanks for your answer @VickNV . Why is the documentation of nvros missing from Driveworks 5.2.0 ?

It was available in the documentation of Driveworks 5.1. Where did it go ? And does it mean we shouldnt use nvros anymore ?

nvros is incomplete in the release. It was found right before releasing and not able to be fixed then. Sorry for any inconvenince.
