Comms image service

This service creates a virtual camera device that can be selected on the controller and displays a map of wifi signal strength. This example will register itself as a payload, which will need to be authorized in the robot’s admin console. The payload dimensions, location, and weight are small values.

How to use

Running locally:

pip install -r docker-requirements.txt
python3 [options] --host-ip <computer IP> <robotIP>

When using a Docker image on CORE I/O:

Follow the instructions in this document to create a docker image and an Extension for CORE I/O. Or, the docker image can be run locally on the command-line:

sudo docker run -it -p {PORT_NUM}:{PORT_NUM} --network host {comms_image_service} --port {PORT_NUM}

The same command can be run on the CORE I/O as an alternative to creating an Extension, after copying the docker image to the CORE I/O and loading it with the command sudo docker load -i {IMAGE_FILE}.
