Mounting upside down

Post by Janet Kang »

Hello,

I'm trying to mount Nerian Scarlet inside a vehicle. Will Scarlet work well if I mount it upside down?
Specifically, will it work well regarding all functions it provides, e.g., calibration, collecting image, and making a disparity map?
Also, is there a way to configure the default rotation angle of Scarlet, so I can collect images of the actual angle?

Thanks in advance.

Mounting Scarlet upside down is not a problem. The only thing to consider is that all data will be rotated.

If you are using ROS you could use the IMU's tf frame for rotating the 3D pointcloud according to Scarlet's orientation, or publish a static coordinate transform that matches your mounting orientation.

If you are not using ROS then you will need to apply a rotation manually to the point cloud.
