Point Grey Bumblebee2 firewire 1394 with Nvidia Jetson TK1 board


Tag: opencv,ubuntu-14.04,nvidia

I have successfully interfaced Point Grey Bumblebee2 firewire1394 camera with Nvida Jetson TK1 board and I get the video using Coriander and video for Linux loop back device is working as well. But when I tried to access camera using OpenCV and Coriander at the same time, I have conflicts. And when I tried to access the video from camera by closing the Coriander then I can get the video but in that case I am not able to change the mode and format of the video. Anyone can help me to resolve this problem. Can I change the video mode of the camera from OpenCV.


You will have to install the flycapture sdk for ARM if you want to do it manually (by code). The flycap UI software i dont believe works on ARM, let alone ubuntu 14.04, just ubuntu 12.04 x86. If you have access, what I usually do is plug it into my windows machine and use the Flycap software to change the configurations on the camera.

I found this question completely randomly, but coincidentally I am trying to interface the bumblebee2 with the jetson right now as well. Would you care to share as to what firewire mini-PCIe you used and how you went about any configurations (stock or grinch kernel, which L4T version) ?

Also, although not fully complete, you can view a code example as to how to interface with the camera using the flycaputre sdk here: It is a ROS driver, but you can just reference the PointGreyCamera.cpp file for examples if your not using ROS.

Hope this helps
