Create an ibeoFileReader object, ibeoReader, to read the message headers from the IDC file. Replace the placeholder argument sample_data.idc with the name of your IDC file as sample_data.idc file is not provided with the toolbox.

ibeoReader = ibeoFileReader('sample_data.idc')
ibeoReader =
  ibeoFileReader with properties:
       FileName: "C:/Documents/MATLAB/ibeo_data/sample_data.idc"

Create an ibeoMessageReader object, imgReader, to read all images in the first 2 minutes, by using the select function with appropriate message type and time range values.

timeRange = [0, minutes(2)];
imgReader = select(ibeoReader, 'image', timeRange);

Visualize the message data by reading the messages one at a time to a video player object. First, create a vision.VideoPlayer object. Then, use the hasNextMessage function to check whether imgReader contains a message after the current one. If it does, use readNextMessage function to read the images into the workspace.

videoPlayer = vision.VideoPlayer;
while hasNextMessage(imgReader)
    img = readNextMessage(imgReader);

Reset the ibeoMessageReader object, imgReader, to the first message in the selection, using the reset function.
