Hello All,

I have implemented a system plugin to get the gui camera pointer and modify it to change the camera pose to get different views out of it. I have called .so file of my system plugin from world file but I plugin never gets called. How can I make this plugin executed ?


Below is the "Update" function of my system plugin:

private: void Update()
  if (!this->userCam)
    // Get a pointer to the active user camera
    this->userCam = gui::get_active_camera();

    std::cout << "GUI camera Pose = " << (this->userCam)->WorldPose() << std::endl;

I am getting following error when I run my system plugin :-

gzserver: /usr/include/boost/smart_ptr/shared_ptr.hpp:648: typename boost::detail::sp_member_access<t>::type boost::shared_ptr<t>::operator->() const [with T = gazebo::rendering::UserCamera; typename boost::detail::sp_member_access<t>::type = gazebo::rendering::UserCamera*]: Assertion `px != 0' failed.

The value of "this->userCam" is always NULL. How can I get this gui camera working.

Thanks in advance for any inputs.

Could you add more information to your question, like the command you're running and what errors you see when you run Gazebo?
