iCub

Connect to the switch on the desk close to the robot.

Change namespace to /icub01

 yarp namespace /icub01

iCub head

Connect to the big switch at the center of the room.

Change namespace to /icub02

 yarp namespace /icub02

To see images:

run two yarpview(s)

 yarpview --name /viewer1
 yarpview --name /viewer2

connect them

 yarp connect /icub/cam/left /viewer1 mcast
 yarp connect /icub/cam/right /viewer2 mcast

don't forget mcast otherwise the framerate might slow down as more people connect.

Simulator

Connect to the small blue switches close to the laptop.

Change namespace to /simulator01

yarp namespace /simulator01

To see images:

run two yarpview(s)

 yarpview --name /viewer1
 yarpview --name /viewer2

connect them

 yarp connect /icubSim/cam/left /viewer1 mcast
 yarp connect /icubSim/cam/right /viewer2 mcast

don't forget mcast otherwise the framerate might slow down as more people connect.

Notes

  • /simulator01 and /icub02 are probably accessible from any switch (or wireless) through the building's network, but I guess with slow performance.
