Hi. I would like to use the feature detection library from opencv to detect an object and then navigate the mobile robot to the center of the object . I dont know only which version of ROS should install and to use it with opencv. I know that can use CvBridge to Convert Between ROS Images and OpenCV Images.

You can use any version of ROS you like starting from electric or any versions after it.

However if I am right, the OpenCV shipped with ROS Kinetic has some modules missing right ? For some of the latest OpenCV 3 features like tracking, you may have to make some changes in your CMakeLists.txt file and make it point towards a custom OpenCV+ OpenCV_contrib build.
