ROS Software Maintainer: CCNY Robotics Lab
The AscTec Pelican and Hummingbird quadrotor helicopters are built by Ascending Technologies and can be interfaced with ROS.
Refer to the asctec_drivers and mav_tools installation instructions.
To get started with the driver, refer to the tutorials on the asctec_drivers page.
AscTec Wiki: a community wiki maintained by the CCNY Robotics Lab. It contains useful information about the AscTec quadrotors' software and hardware.
AscTec Users mailing list community mailing list, maintained by the CCNY Robotics Lab.
http://answers.ros.org: the ROS question-and-answer board. Please tag you questions with "ccny-ros-pkg" as well as any other relevant tags
asctec_drivers: (ROS Stack) contains the drivers necessary to communicate with the AscTec vehicles.
mav_tools: (ROS Stack) contains hardware-agnostic micro-air vehicle tools
starmac-ros-pkg: (ROS Repository) high-level, vehicle-independent (AscTec vehicles are supported via asctec_drivers or asctec_mav_framework) control framework for quadrotors (UC Berkeley)
asctec_mav_framework: An alternative to asctec_drivers; requires flashing the quadrotor's onboard firmware but provides more capabilities.
