Software development kits (SDK) for optris PI thermal imaging cameras

We offer two SDKs for our PI thermal imaging cameras:

Connect SDK
This SDK offers a very wide range of functions. The PI Connect software needs to run as background process.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7, 8, 10
The Connect-SDK is part of the scope of delivery of the optris PI.

Direct SDK
This SDK does not require the PI Connect software to be run.
The library "libirimager" provides a C ++ interface for Linux and Windows.
Supported operating systems: Windows 7, 8, 10 / Linux
You can download the Direct SDK free of charge from the Evocortex GmbH website: http://www.evocortex.org/downloads-1/

Note: For the standardization of interfaces on Linux and Windows, some changes had to be made in the current version of the Direct SDK compared to the previous version. The old version (for Linux only ) can be downloaded here:
i386amd64atomeabihf and armel

ROS interface for the Direct SDK:
Optris' thermal imaging cameras can be integrated into an ROS middleware for the above architectures. Wrappers for the previos version (ROS fuerte to ROS jade) and the latest version (ROS kinetic and upwards) can be found here: http://wiki.ros.org/optris_drivers
