Hello guys,

I'm trying to use this calibration package for 2 monocular cameras that are fixed on the bottom of a Quadcoter. According to the documentation this package is capable to do this.

my setup

My setup is shown in this figure drawing

  • Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty)
  • ROS Distro= Indigo
  • Catkin workspace with catkin tools

my goal

My goal is to get the pose between the two bottom cameras and also the tf Transformation of the bigger one (I already got the tf from the small bottom camera).

installation problems

Problem about the whole story is more or less the installation. I checked with javascript rosdep db
for the package ros-indigo-camera-pose so i could use javascript sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-camera-pose but had no success.

Second attempt was to try an installation from source through github. Somehow Catkin tools does not recognise the camera_pose package when I try to build it through the command:

javascript catkin build [package]

Checking the dependencies with rosdep fails too.

So my first thought was to update this package, so catkin tools can build it. Any suggestion how to do this without studying informatics for 5 years :D?
