Programming the AR.Drone with Robots Operating System (ROS)

Earlier we showed you some video’s in which the AR.Drone was controlled by the Urbi SDK. In the video below the Drone follows an AR tag. The drone is controlled by a ROS program. ROS, which stands for Robot Operating System, is an open source meta operating system for robots. It is comparable to Urbi which was mentioned earlier on this blog. ROS has support for popular robots like the AR.Drone, Lego Mindstorms NXT and the WowWee Rovio and a whole range of custom bots.
