#StackBounty: #camera #raspicam #streaming-video #picamera ROS Webcam Stream Really Slow

Bounty: 50

I am trying to stream the images from my camera to a laptop via ROS. Here is my setup:

  • Raspberry Pi 3B+ with USB Webcam. It is running ROS Noetic with usb_camera_node
  • An Ubuntu 20.04.1 laptop with ROS Noetic. I am reviewing the live stream using rosrun rqt_image_view rqt_image_view

When I tried this, the stream is really laggy and slow. I am barely getting 10 fps. I was able to do camera calibration with it but mapping with it will be really challenging. Is there any way to speed it up. Can I decrease the quality of the camera capture? Any help is truly appreciated.
