I want to send the data of posision of the cameras optitrack (windows pc) to ros (ubuntu pc). I was reading many forums and decided to choose the method vrpn_client_ros.
In Motive I have the vrpn broadcast option with ip (220.127.116.11) and a port: 3883. I made a LAN with a router where the windows pc has an ip (192.168.1.2) and the Ubuntu pc has an ip (192.168.1.1).
When I run the launch file (roslaunch vrpn_client_ros sample.launch server: = “18.104.22.168”) on a terminal, I get the answers: “Connecting to VRPN server at 22.214.171.124” and “Connection established”.
My problem is that the topics published do not appear, and therefore I can not get the position data in ros.
How can I solve this problem?
Do I have to modify the launch file?
