i don't know how to fly the ardrone in the tum simulator and how to run the python scripts in the simulator for the autonomy flight

Hi, a couple of questions first. Where you able to run the simulator successfully? What topics do you get when you run rostopic list?

tum_simulator replicates the topics created by ardrone_autonomy to match the ardrone_driver node. Let me know so we can go on.

I don't see in your answer the topic /ardrone/navdata, /ardrone/takeoff, /ardrone/land, and /cmd_vel. Can you confirm if you see them and forgot to include them?

What kind of error do you get? Is gazebo gui launched at all? did you install the ardrone_autonomy and tum_simulator from the fuerte branch?

Right, you need to publish to the topics that I mentioned and you don't seem to have in order to make the ardrone move. Try reinstalling the ardrone_autonomy and tum_simulator packages. When you clone them from the git repository make sure you select the fuerte branch

You can fly with joystick or simply (it is very uncomfortable ) by publishing to topic. Check section 3.3

actually the command line doesn't work , i tried all the commands listed in the section 3.3 they don't work , and what i want really is to move the drone in the simulator using the python programs in the autonavx_ardrone file
