crazyflie motion capture system using vicon with ROS

Post by Jaewon »

I installed ROS melodic and crazyflie environment on Ubuntu 18.04 to use motion capture system with vicon.
I connected to the LAN cable.
I want to get a flight data with the vicon system, but I couldn't get the data like this picture.
I think the data cannot convert from the LAN to the computer.
What can I do in this case?

I recommend using the Crazyswarm, which has the Vicon Datastream SDK included (i.e., no need to run vicon_bridge separately). Also note that vicon_bridge uses an old version of the Datastream SDK.

From your screenshot, it simply looks like you did not set the hostname/IP address. You either need to make sure that the PC that runs VICON Tracker has the hostname "vicon", or manually specify its hostname/IP when launch vicon_bridge.
