The sample components came with OpenRTM-aist

OpenRTM-aist comes with some sample components that are easy to use. (OpenCV is required for CameraViewer / OpenCVCamera components.) Also, the source code of the sample component is included, so please refer to it for development.

This chapter describes the samples provided with OpenRTM-aist. If you want to use the sample component, start the name service before starting the sample component. The following programs are provided for the name service.

  • Start Naming Service.bat (C ++)
  • (Python)

To run the name server on Windows, locate the file in Explorer and double-click it. If you installed using the installer, you can also start the name service by selecting [Start Menu]> [OpenRTM-aist]> [Start Naming Service]. Note that this chapter assumes that RTSystemEditor is installed in your environment. For details on installing RTSystemEditor, see Installing OpenRTP.
