Home of the unnoficial ROS driver for MatrixVisionBlueFox cameras.

Installing the mvIMPACT Acquire Library

1. Download the latest drivers from Matrix-Vision drivers page:

  • Select mvBlueFOX / mvBlueFOX-MLC in the drop down fields. Download the latest Linux drivers (e.g. mvVirtualDevice x86_XXXXXXXX.tgz) and unpack the archive in to a directory:


The driver can be run as a regular node by launching:


The driver can be launched as a nodelet as:

The camera can be calibrated via the camera_calibration package from image_pipeline by launching:

NOTE: You must modify the checkerboard patter calibration parameters to suit your own.

After a .yaml calibration file has been properly generated, the actual rectified images can be processed further via image_pipeline's image_proc. Thus, the following launchers achieve that, respectively.




The mv_bluefox_driver node wraps the official driver for MatrixVisionBlueFox devices and advertises sensor_msgs/Image messages published by image_transport::Publisher (API) as well as the corresponding camera information as sensor_msgs/CameraInfo. These can be further processed via the image_pipeline's image_proc (see the Example section for launching).
