Deep Object Pose Estimation

Download the base drivers for deep object pose estimation (trained on RGB cameras)

DOPE Base Drivers Based on this paper

Someone has tried this to include the depth data too: DOPE RealSense Drivers

Also: There are several dependencies I had to manually install since I’m using ROS Melodic (both of these packages are built for Kinetic)

Actually using the dope package

  1. Edit the dope/config/config_pose.yaml
topic_camera: "/camera/color/image_raw"
topic_camera_info: "/camera/color/camera_info"
  1. roslaunch dope dope.launch
