How to I use the AutonomyLab/bebop_vel_ctrl package?

asked 2018-04-13 01:26:31 -0600


I'm running Ubuntu 16.06 and ROS kinetic. I want to control the bebop2 at the desired velocity.

I found the ROS package to control bebop2. This package uses angles rather than velocity as parameters. links) So I felt the need for a velocity controller.

Fortunately I found as AutonomyLab/bebop_vel_ctrl package with a velocity controller. but I could not find which topic to use to control bebop2.

What should I do to control at my desired velocity?

Welcome! As far as I can recall, you can't directly control the velocity (at least forward and left/right) because quadcopters are underactuated. You can, however, directly control the Euler angles though.
