I am doing a user study where I need to use the topic visualization tool to show user the camera information required to tele-operate the robot. Is there a way of launching Topic Visualization Window programmatically? Or some other better way of visualization? RViz's image update for some reason is very laggy and can not be used in the user study for real-time feedback.

One way would be to call gz topic --view ... from a script.

Another way is to write a node which copies what the gz topic --view command line tool is doing. Here is the code for that tool.
