This Python sample may be slow depending on the event rate of the file. We provide it to allow quick prototyping. For better performance, look at the corresponding C++ sample.

CSV Viewer Sample using Python

The sample shows how to use Metavision SDK pipeline utility to read and display events from a CSV formatted event-based file (e.g. CSV file produced by metavision_raw_to_csv sample).

The source code of this sample can be found in <install-prefix>/share/metavision/sdk/core/python_samples/metavision_adaptive_rate when installing Metavision SDK from installer or packages. For other deployment methods, check the page Path of Samples.

How to start

To start the sample based on recorded data, provide the full path to a CSV file (for example, a RAW file from our Sample Recordings converted to CSV format using the metavision_raw_to_csv sample):


python3 -i FILE_NAME.csv


python -i FILE_NAME.csv

To check for additional options:


python3 -h


python -h
