Acquire images from the stereo camera Bumblebee (PointGrey Research Inc.) under LabVIEW using IMAQ for IEEE1394

Did somebody control the stereo camera Bumblebee (PointGrey  Research Inc.) under LabVIEW using IMAQ for IEEE1394?
 
How can i acquire images (stereo pair) with LabVIEW?

Re: Acquire images from the stereo camera Bumblebee (PointGrey Research Inc.) under LabVIEW using IMAQ for IEEE1394

Hello wlan,

 

the Point Grey  Bumblebee Camera is a IEEE1394 Camera and works under the IIDC - Standard with the NI-IMAQ for IEEE1394 Driver http://digital.ni.com/softlib.nsf/websearch/161B95F09A55347F862571EF00549358?opendocument&node=13207....

For aquire pictures from both cameras, please test the following LV - Programm.

Re: Acquire images from the stereo camera Bumblebee (PointGrey Research Inc.) under LabVIEW using IMAQ for IEEE1394

Hello Uwe,
 
thanks a lot for your answer. After i changed the camera driver to the NI-IMAQ-IEEE1394 driver, i can get images in MAX. The images are from the right lense, the camera name is cam0.
 
But wenn i add a cam1 into a VI, that can not be recognized.
 
The Bumblebee camera has 1 firewire interface and 2 lenses.
 
Can you tell me what should i do so that i can get stereo pairs?
 
Thanks!

I am using NI Vision Acquisition Software Version 8.2.3 for windows and trying to connect bumblebee stereo camera, but It is not detected by the NI-IMAQ.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Acquire images from the stereo camera Bumblebee (PointGrey Research Inc.) under LabVIEW using IMAQ for IEEE1394

According to the Pt. Grey Datasheet the Bumblebee is compliant with the IIDC 1394-based Digital Camera Specification v1.31. Both NI-IMAQdx 3.0.x and Legacy NI-IMAQ for IEEE 1394 Cameras 2.0.x support IIDC cameras. I recommend using NI-IMAQdx for new application development. The driver is available for download from:

http://digital.ni.com/softlib.nsf/websearch/5153F722B0F33FFA862572AE004E2FE4

I have not tested the Bumblebee. I am not certain how to get images from both sensors. I will try to get my the bumblebee and see if we can data streams from both sensors.

Hope this helps,

JohannS

how to get images from both sensors is the key problem. I didnot make it. Please try it and tell us your method if you can do it! Thanks a lot!

Re: Acquire images from the stereo camera Bumblebee (PointGrey Research Inc.) under LabVIEW using IMAQ for IEEE1394

Well, in my case I am not able to see either of the stereo camera and I do have the latest NI-IMAQ drivers. I have also tried on compact vision system (Real-Time Hardware), which didn't work either. I know my camera works because I am able to grab images using  Digiclops. 

Any  suggestions?

Thanks.

In MAX, select NI-Driver as you camera driver!

and you can get images, but only from one sensor (i think it was the left one...)
