flir_camera_driver: spinnaker_camera_driver

Package Summary

Spinnaker camera driver based on Spinnaker.

Troubleshooting

USB cameras may require raising the amount of memory allocated to the USB subsystem. The Spinnaker drivers may fail without warning, or may give an error -1010 when this occurs. The usbcore variable usbfs_memory_mb should be set suitably large. This application note describes two common ways of setting it, via the kernel command line (edit /boot/grub.conf), or at runtime via /sys/module/usbcore/parameters/usbfs_memory_mb . An older method involving setting parameters in an appropriate file in /etc/modprobe.d/ is no longer applicable in recent Ubuntu systems which have usbcore built into the kernel rather than loaded with modprobe.

This driver is largely derived from the older Point Grey/Flycapture SDK, and the troubleshooting suggestions on that wiki page may be relevant.
