# C++ Matrix Vision BlueFOX3 driver
mvBlueFOX3 library {#mainpage}
Driver for Matrix Vision BlueFOX3 cameras.
## Description
This library provides quick access to all the basic functions of Matrix Vision
BlueFOX USB 3.0 cameras.
### Software dependences
## Installation
- Matrix Vision driver. Orientative installation for a Linux x86_64. For detailed specifications and driver installations, please visit [Matrix
Vision Drivers and Software](
- `cd ~/Downloads`
- `wget -O mvGenTL_Acquire-x86_64_ABI2-2.26.0.tgz`
- `wget -O`
- `sudo chmod +x`
- `./`
* Add the labrobotica repository if it is not already added:
### Example of usage
``` sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] xenial main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/labrobotica_repo.list' ```
Tested with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and mvBlueFOX3-M1012bC cameras.
``` wget -O - | sudo apt-key add - ```
- To run the manufacturer GUI, execute the following command in a terminal:
- `wxPropView`
* Install the package:
- C++ library test (check the console output message because in case of not having OpenCV 3.0 installed, the images won't be displayed but a message about successfull acquisition will be shown):
- `bin/./mvbluefox3_test`.
``` sudo apt update && sudo apt install iri-mvbluefox3-dev ```

### Troubleshooting
- OpenCV
- apt install libopencv-dev
- Boost
- apt -y install libboost-all-dev
- Matrix Vision driver. Download and install SDK (version 2.26 tested):
- wget -O mvGenTL_Acquire-x86_64_ABI2-2.26.0.tgz
- wget -O
- chmod +x
- ./ -u

##### Configuring USBFS
## Troubleshooting
### Configuring USBFS
By default, Linux limits image capture buffers (e.g. to 16MB).
If you run wxPropView in a terminal and opening the camera it complains about USBFS memory buffer, apply the following steps to set the memory limit to 1000MB:

### No images received using original Matrix Vision software (wxPropView)
The original manufacturer driver has compatibility problems with some graphic cards. If you run the Matrix Vision software to setup the camera and no camera is detected, you might want to test older driver versions. An example could be using this one:
- As first step, uninstall all driver versions using the Matrix Vision software. Then, run the following:
- `cd ~/Downloads`
- `wget -O mvGenTL_Acquire-x86_64_ABI2-2.17.0.tgz`
- `cd ~/Downloads`

- `wget -O`
- `sudo chmod +x`
- `./`

## Dependencies
his package requires of the following system libraries and packages
* [cmake]( "CMake's Homepage"), a cross-platform build system.
* [doxygen]( "Doxygen's Homepage") and [graphviz]( "Graphviz's Homepage") to generate the documentation.
* stdc++.
Under linux all of these utilities are available in ready-to-use packages.
Under MacOS most of the packages are available via [fink]( "Fink's Homepage")
## Compilation and installation from source
Clone this repository and create a build folder inside:
``` mkdir build ```
Inside the build folder execute the following commands:
``` cmake .. ```
The default build mode is DEBUG. That is, objects and executables include debug information.
The RELEASE build mode optimizes for speed. To build in this mode execute instead
The release mode will be kept until next time cmake is executed.
``` make -j $(nproc)```
In case no errors are reported, the generated libraries (if any) will be located at the
_lib_ folder and the executables (if any) will be located at the _bin_ folder.
In order to be able to use the library, it it necessary to copy it into the system.
To do that, execute
``` make install ```
as root and the shared libraries will be copied to */usr/local/lib/iri/mvbluefox3* directory
and the header files will be copied to */usr/local/include/iri/mvbluefox3* dierctory.
At this point, the library may be used by any user.
To remove the library from the system, exceute
``` make uninstall ```
as root, and all the associated files will be removed from the system.
To generate the documentation execute the following command:
``` make doc ```
## How to use it
To use this library in an other library or application, in the CMakeLists.txt file, first it is necessary to locate if the library has been installed or not using the following command
``` FIND_PACKAGE(mvbluefox3) ```
In the case that the package is present, it is necessary to add the header files directory to the include directory path by using
and it is also necessary to link with the desired libraries by using the following command
``` TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES(<executable name> ${mvbluefox3_LIBRARIES}) ```
## Examples
- To run the manufacturer GUI, execute the following command in a terminal:
- `wxPropView`
- There is one example called _mvbluefox3_test_. Check the console output message because in case of not having OpenCV 3.0 installed, the images won't be displayed but a message about successfull acquisition will be shown:
- `bin/mvbluefox3_test`
