I have successfully interfaced Point Grey Bumblebee2 firewire1394 camera with Nvida Jetson TK1 board and I get the video using Coriander and video for Linux loop back device is working as well. But when I tried to access camera using OpenCV and Coriander at the same time, I have conflicts. And when I tried to access the video from camera by closing the Coriander then I can get the video but in that case I am not able to change the mode and format of the video. Anyone can help me to resolve this problem. Can I change the video mode of the camera from OpenCV.
Best How To :
You will have to install the flycapture sdk for ARM if you want to do it manually (by code). The flycap UI software i dont believe works on ARM, let alone ubuntu 14.04, just ubuntu 12.04 x86. If you have access, what I usually do is plug it into my windows machine and use the Flycap software to change the configurations on the camera.
I found this question completely randomly, but coincidentally I am trying to interface the bumblebee2 with the jetson right now as well. Would you care to share as to what firewire mini-PCIe you used and how you went about any configurations (stock or grinch kernel, which L4T version) ?
Also, although not fully complete, you can view a code example as to how to interface with the camera using the flycaputre sdk here: https://github.com/ros-drivers/pointgrey_camera_driver. It is a ROS driver, but you can just reference the PointGreyCamera.cpp file for examples if your not using ROS.
Hope this helps
