[ros-users] FLIR GigE thermal camera driver

Hi guys,

I'm involved in a ROS-inside robot integration project recently. In this
project, we have to use a FLIR gige thermal camera to let the robot see the
thermal radiation of objectives. It is a GenICam compatible GigE camera,
and Pleora eBUS SDK is recommended for its Linux development, therefore I
found the gevicam_camera <http://www.ros.org/wiki/gevicam_camera> package,
the driver for GeViCAM stereo camera of the PR2 robot. Since eBUS can be
applied to all the GenICam compatible GigE camera, I thought this driver
can also be used by us for FLIR camera. Unfortunately this driver has some
specific features for GeViCAM. So I wrote a new simpler driver based on
examples of the latest eBUS and some useful ROS packages (image_transport,
cv_bridge, dynamic_reconfigure and so on). Here is a screen cast of running
the thermal camera with ROS:

This driver also has some specific features for the FLIR camera, but could
be a generic GenICam compatible GigE camera ROS driver if removes the
dynamic_reconfigure server, and may be useful to some people. If so, I'd
like to contribute it. However I'm not sure if the Pleora eBUS license
allows me to do this?
