This looks like a rosbuild package; have you tried downloading it into your rosbuild workspace, running rosmake on it, and then running the launch file as indicated?

Can I use catkin? I have tried downloading it into catkin workspace and running catkin_make: cd catkin_ws/src git clone -b hydro-devel catkin_make But the package don't install. I'm using hydro version. How can I work with rosbuild?

No, it's a rosbuild package. You can't use catkin with it; you'll have to create a separate rosbuild workspace that is overlaid on top of your catkin workspace. Take a look at .

Finally, I didn't use this package but think what "ahendrix" said is a right way.

Try to do it , and If you have questions, post!

Thanks for your reply. Is there any other package about tracking and navigation with ArDrone that you try it?
