  • Exposes raw IMU sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer) along with a flexible configuration interface.
  • Adds support for CMV4000 imagers (2048x2048.)
  • Many small bugfixes and feature enhancements.
  • Addresses an issue with Firmware Version 2.3 that could lead to incorrect image rectification

Please note this firmware release is only supported for MultiSense-SL and S7 units.

To upgrade an existing MultiSense-SL, first download and build the latest ROS driver from bitbucket:  

https://bitbucket.org/crl/multisense_ros 

Detailed instructions on how to do this can be found in section 1.2 of the attached document, MultiSense-SL ROS Driver_v2.3.pdf.

If you are upgrading an existing ROS driver installation, make sure to issue a "--pre-clean" directive when rebuilding:

$ rosmake --pre-clean multisense

After building the latest ROS driver, your MultiSense-SL can be field upgraded to v2.3 firmware by downloading the multisense_firmware_v2_3_1.slf file and issuing the following command from the ROS driver environment:

$ rosrun multisense_lib MultiSenseUpdater 10.66.171.21 multisense_firmware_v2_3_1.slf

(assuming the IP address of the MultiSense-SL is "10.66.171.21")

WARNING: Before upgrading, please refer to section 2.5.6 of the MultiSense-SL ROS Driver_v2.3.pdf document for important instructions regarding the use of the MultiSenseUpdater utility.
