Using MIPI CSI-2 cameras with the Spacely carrier can be done with Gstreamer. The following guide will outline how the CSI-2 lanes in Ubuntu map the physical connectors on our carriers. The “sensor-id” column of the tables details which CSI-2 lane corresponds to the camera connector label indicated on the PCB silkscreen.
When installing less then the maximum number of sensors, the cameras must be connected starting with sensor-id 0, please see the chart below for connector to sensor-id mappings.Note: Many of the commands shown in this guide will require you to be the root user or to use sudo

Using Gstreamer pipeline
The following code segment can be used for IMX274/IMX185 camera as an input source by replacing “sensor-id=0” with your desired sensor id number. If you are using a different camera, this code can be used as a template.
