In particular I can't find a way to import the definition of ar_pose::ARMarker.

Hi, You can include these headers:

#include <ar_pose/ARMarker.h>


#include <ar_pose/ARMarkers.h>

depending if you want to work with a single or multiple markers.

The bag files in the ar_pose page are old, and have to be fixed with a command rosbag fix, there is also a problem with the frame transformations (check ar_pose track), therefore I would recommend you to print a marker and test it with an USB camera or other. I think it will be easier. regards.
