Visualizing Robot Sensor Input – Camera’s View

To visualize robot sensors in RViz, such as the Tugbot’s front and back cameras –

Expand the Tugbot Sensors group to display the following and mark the FrontCamera and the BackCamera checkboxes. RViz then opens a window showing the video input from those two cameras, as shown below –


Unmarking the OmniLaserScan checkbox, hides the colors along the edge of the walls and solid objects.

Note – The more checkboxes are marked in this area, the slower the simulation may work. For example, we recommend unmarking the OmniPointCloud2 checkbox which is not needed.
