Depth camera (raw Z-Buffer)


A camera capturing RGBA image

This sensor gets raw Z-Buffer from the camera perspective.

See also Generic Camera for generic informations about Morse cameras.

Data fields

This sensor exports these datafields at each simulation step:

  • timestamp (float, initial value: 0.0)
    number of seconds in simulated time
  • image (buffer, initial value: none)
    Raw Z-Buffer captured by the camera, not converted. bgl.Buffer of float of size (cam_width * cam_height * sizeof(float)) bytes.
  • intrinsic_matrix (mat3<float>, initial value: none)
    The intrinsic calibration matrix, stored as a 3x3 row major Matrix.

Interface support:

(attention, no interface support!)

Services for Depth camera (raw Z-Buffer)

  • capture(n) (non blocking)

    Capture n images

    • Parameters
      • n: the number of images to take. A negative number means take image indefinitely
  • get_configurations() (blocking)

    Returns the configurations of a component (parsed from the properties).

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current component’s configurations

  • get_local_data() (blocking)

    Returns the current data stored in the sensor.

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current sensor’s data

  • get_properties() (blocking)

    Returns the properties of a component.

    • Return value

      a dictionary of the current component’s properties

  • set_property(prop_name, prop_val) (blocking)

    Modify one property on a component

    • Parameters

      • prop_name: the name of the property to modify (as shown the documentation)
      • prop_val: the new value of the property. Note that there is no checking about the type of the value so be careful
    • Return value



The following examples show how to use this component in a Builder script:

from morse.builder import *

# adds a default robot (the MORSE mascott!)
robot = Morsy()

# creates a new instance of the sensor
rawimage = RawImage()

# place your component at the correct location
rawimage.translate(<x>, <y>, <z>)
rawimage.rotate(<rx>, <ry>, <rz>)


# define one or several communication interface, like 'socket'

env = Environment('empty')
