Visual Navigation for the Parrot AR.Drone (ROS Package)

The tum_ardrone Robot Operating System (ROS) package allows to let the Parrot AR.Drone fly autonomously, using PTAM-based, visual navigation. The package repository is currently maintained by Jakob Engel. The documentation and repository can be found on the ROS wiki pages: http://www.ros.org/wiki/tum_ardrone.

The methods used are detailed further in the corresponding publications:
