Lighthouse with ROS

Post by Samiam »

Hello,
I'd like to use the lighthouse positioning system with the ROS packages to fly 2-3 CFs but there aren't many threads about Lighthouse in general compared to LPS so I'm a little confused on how/where to start. Wolfgang Honig has a tutorial available on flying multiple CFs using a motion capture system like VICON, could I use the lighthouse instead? If anyone has tried this before, a nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Sam
