It would be very helpful for validating software built against depthai if we had a software-only simulator that spoke xlink and could connect to depthai as a virtual camera device. The super ideal would be something that hooked into something like Gazebo, but even a simple simulator that could just verify that depthai applications will work on real devices would be very helpful for development, CI, etc.
Does Luxonis have anything like this internally that could be reworked to be a public project? Or has anyone started to implement this on their own? If I were to try to implement something like this, how would I start writing something that could talk XLink, or accept pipelines?
