Turtlebot3 on ROS Noetic - Raspicam & Raspberry Pi4

Raspberry Pi Camera: Does the raspicam_node (either Debian install or compiled) work on UB20.04/Noetic? If not is code available using OpenCV (or something else) to display the image in rqt_image_view?

Raspberry Pi4: Would the published Ubuntu20.04 / ROS Noetic Debian install procedure support the TB3 stack? Is a Raspberry Pi4B TB3 sd card image to be available?

Hi @red24dog

Unfortunately, the raspicam_node is deprecated and does not support the Noetic as I know of.
I’ve tested the OpenCV and confirmed that it works with TurtleBot3.
Our engineers are working on the eManual documentation for this change in the Autonomous Driving section and you’ll soon be able to see how to configure the OpenCV for TurtleBot3.

We’re working on various SBCs and Raspberry Pi 4 will soon be supported in the eManual including the RPi4 recovery image.

I’ve confirmed that the RPi4 (2GB / 4GB) works with basic operation of TB3(such as SLAM and Navigation), but there are some examples / applications packages need to be updated as RPi4 does not support Kinetic anymore.

Hi, no one is have much luck with ROS anymore, I hope you have a time Frame in mind for a OS that works, as this Quarter is almost gone and Windows 11 is upon us.

I appreciate your response and good to hear of an upcoming release of TB3 RPi3 or RPi4Noetic packages. I presume this will be a operational Autorace not just the simulation that is released now?

I also want to ask about a Foxy TB3 / RPi4 release with operational camera support and Autorace? As we are aware the ROS world is quickly expanding into ROS2 where the TB3 is an excellent small functionally powerful RobotRoss hardware implementation that would benefit from the benefits of ROS2.

I really like using my TB3 Burger for my learning and communities education activities and hope
