I would like to acquire and process images from a Basler a2A-1920-160umPRO on a Jetson Nano.
I can access this camera with the Image Acquisition Toolbox on a PC, but on the Jetson I see only my Logitech webcam.

To access Jetson from MATLAB you have to use the Jetson class, try this out if you are using the Drive class.
obj = jetson
obj = jetson(deviceaddress,username,password)
To learn more about using the Jetson Nvidia hardware with MATLAB please refer to the link below

OK, I have done this.
But how can I access the image stream frommy Basler camera? I see my Logitech webcam, but I do not see my Basler camera, which is connected to the Jetson by USB.
The Basler camera works well if I connect it to my PC.

I have looked into this issue,currently "GPU Coder support package for NVIDIA GPUs" can only provide access to webcam devices listed under /dev. These Basler cameras can not be listed since they use a proprietary driver from Basler.
You can use this link to check your device support compatibility
