Hi team,
I am using ROSbot 2.o pro I am having issue using astra camera when i type in roslaunch astra_launch astra.launch , it throws me a camera unsupported color video mode : resolution 640*480@15Hz Format : RGB888

have You obtained all the necessary files (including astra.launch) from this repository: GitHub - orbbec/ros_astra_launch: Launch files to open an Astra device and load all nodelets to convert raw depth/RGB/IR streams to depth images, disparity images, and (registered) point clouds. ?
What files do You see in the launch folder?

Best regards,

Due to the lack of an answer, we close the topic.

@Yams has the same issue. Check out the suggestions in my post above. Then you can follow the instructions from our ROS Tutorial - Starting camera section.

Let me know about the results.

Best regards
Jan Brzyk


Thank you for your help, I am going to check the information.
