System Integration Questions
Hello. I want to implement a camera which supports GigE Vision on a mobile robot. The robot main control is reachable in the company intranet via W-Lan and has an ip-address of the address range 12.12.XXX.XXX. The main control of the robot works as a router and builds an own subnet for the components on the mobile robot. The camera is integrated in this subnet. The subnet uses the address range 192.168.XXX.XXX. Is it possible to reach the camera in the subnet by a workstation in the company intranet? We have already implemented the portforwarding for GigE Vision in the robot control which forwards the request from a workstation in the company intranet to the camera in the robot subnet. But it isn’t possible to find the camera with GigE Vision Tools from the intranet. The main question is: Does GigE Vision support network routing? Thank you for your efforts.

There are a few challenges with GigE vision cameras on networks. The first thing I would try is to install the camera manufacturers software (that is the actual manufacturer of the camera usually have some software for configuration), and see if you can find the camera from this, as this typically uses MAC address searches for the equipment. Hopefully this will help you.
