Working with the ZED2

Warning, for some reason the installation of the libv4l-dev package on the jetson board will break serious stuff.


Detailed information about the ZED2 camera and the ros-wrapper can be found on the Stereolabs website.


Running roslaunch zed_wrapper zed2.launch on the robot should launch all neccesary nodes.


The ZED nodes can be configured with the zed-ros-wrapper/zed_wrapper/launch/ ZED2.launch and the zed-ros-wrapper/zed_wrapper/params/common.yaml file.


  • Serial Number: 28000618
  • should a error with the configuration file occur, dowload a new factory config file at: (note that the config file is custom to the serial number SN) and place it in /usr/local/zed/settings/ on the Jetson NX ([email protected])
  • the camera can be reconfigured by running the calibration programm located in /us/local/zed/tools/ZED_Calibration... with the command ./ZED_Calibration...
