Capture synchronized video and IMU data

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is it possible to capture video and IMU data in a synchronized way with this platform? My goal was to perform visual-inertial odometry so I needed to have sub-ms accuracy on the capturing of this data on the Aero platform. I was interested to capture video from any of the cameras that can be connected to the platform (8MP camera, VGA camera and Realsense camera). Thanks for the help!

The documentation for the Aero Compute Board states that it has a 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF) IMU sensor. The link below provides details on how to access it.

You can capture the IMU data using dronekit or the ROS software platform, according to Intel support team member Alexandra.

Thanks MartyG. I missed that link. However in that issue there is no conclusion if you can capture the IMU data in synch with all the cameras that are part of the Intel Aero, and how well in synch the measurements are. I will continue my question in that thread though.
