Failed to create camera component


I started the robot and connected with workstation, when I run command ‘roslaunch magni_demos simple_navigation.launch’ I received error ‘failed to create camera component’. Could you please help me understand what is going on? Thank you!

Hi @nelson,

Thanks for your question. That error occurs when the Raspberry Pi can’t establish communication with the camera. Please check that your camera cable is securely connected in the right orientation, and try again.


The page that explains the camera setup has been updated with current pictures and better explanations. Please see this link:

Thank you @rohbotics @mjstn2011
Now the camera works. The cable direction was incorrect.

Great to hear it. We have been actively improving our documents on the learn site and the page I linked to above was just updated with new pictures and details a couple weeks ago. Enjoy your robot!
