Cannot control drone using OptiTrack mocap system

Post by sajisaka »

Hello, everyone,

I try to control Crazyflie by a motion capture (OptiTrack + Motive + VRPN + ROS melodic).
I make a frame to attach markers, and I tried a flight according to instruction of crazyswarm, but a drone does not seem to be controlled.

This is my result.

(Lain on my back immediately without taking off)

I confirm the following dots
1) I set the Z-axis on the top in Motive
2) I confirm that a drone can take off by manual manipulation with marker frame
3) I confirm that the position of the drone is recognized on Rviz

Is there anything to be checked?

Regards,
AJISAKA

Hi!

Sorry for the late reply! Unfortunately we don't have an optitrack system here in the office ourselves, so we can't help with the motive part of things.

Have you tried asking this on crazyswarm github page and make an issue or an discussion post?
