Hi all, I would like to program an AR.Drone 2.0 using ROS in C++. However im still stuck on how to go about it from creating a package to what libraries to use and commands to get the video feed from the drone to openCV and to pass commands to the drone from the code. I went through the ROS tutorials with installation and creating packages and also have the ardrone_autonomy driver installed but am a bit overwhelmed with what I need from all the information. Im new to this area of work and would sincerely appreciate if someone can help me step by step on how I should begin.

Thanks in advance!

You can use my repository. Please note it is not tutorial and we have not any documentations. We are developing it for Russian competition of flying robots, so it contain many special code. You can find examples of sending command to AR.Drone in navigation.cpp Also you can find examples of using OpenCV in tag_detection.cpp.

Also you can find some examples in this package
