chip updates: vision! [updates]
So while we're looking into doing more with the robotic platform, we need to also look into the vision system we have on-board which is the T265 RealSense tracking-camera: https://github.com/IntelRealSense/realsense-ros
I found the GitHub and the RealSense publishes the following topics:
And the T265 specifically has some extras:
We're going to have to go through all of these individually but there is a tutorial about how to get a re-constructed MAP out of the T265. We're going to use this for two things, (1) obstacle avoidance, and (2) object detection/to send images back to the ground-station of what the robot sees.
