Streaming Data from Arena

by RoboGuy » Wed Oct 30, 2013 9:20 am

I am trying to stream data from mocap to another computer on my network. I am using ROS and trying to capture the data streamed. There does exist a ROS node that captures the streamed data and publishes it as a transform. However I am not capturing the data. I set the streaming to multicast and put the IP of my other computer. I selected Rigid Hand Coord, 3D Marker Positions, Rigid Body Data and Rigid Body Marker Pros to stream. However I am still not getting any data. I am very sure that the ROS node is running fine. So the problem is in my streaming. What is going wrong?

Hi RoboGuy,

This could be a network issue on your mocap computer. Have you disabled windows firewall? Do you have any antivirus applications running? Have you tried streaming from Arena to ROS on the same computer?

I disabled the windows firewall and there is no antivirus running on the computer. I cannot run the ROS node on the same computer because I am running ROS on a Ubuntu machine. I am running Arena on a Windows computer. The Windows computer is not setup to run ROS. I ran a program to look at the data being sent and received from the network. From what I found, Arena is not broadcasting anything. What can the problem be?

Hello,

Could I have a screenshot of your broadcast settings in Arena? We do offer remote desktop assistance.
