Installing ardrone_autonomy


#1

Hello every body! after installing ROS I am trying to install ardrone_autonomy. but binary install method is not working when i try to apply the “Compile from source” method. i successfully complete the steps. i get the result like as shown in the picture. [100%] Built target ardrone_driver.


In next step when i use it . and type "rosrun ardrone_autonomy ardrone_driver"
it says that package not found. I has wasted my a lot of time. Plz if somebody knows comment. thanks in advance.

Did you figure it out yet? I can get it installed using the binary ,method but cannot run the ardrone_driver function. Really annoying.
Thanks

Hey, I think you need to update your ros environment variable.

export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=/home//catkin_ws/src:$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

After doing this, rospack find ardrone_autonomy will return above path. This is because rospack depends on “ROS_PACKAGE_PATH” to find packages.
