Week 12: 12 August 2019 - 18 August 2019


  • The build of ardrone_vislab failed.
  • Switched to making a urdf for ardrone.
  • The plugin present in JDERobot base uses ICE drivers so a new plugin is needed.


  • Create a urdf for the ardrone.
  • Create a plugin to replace the present ardrone plugin which doesn’t use ICE.


  • Created the urdf. It currently uses the plugin which interfaces through ICE.

Problems faced

  • Never having built a gazebo plugin, building that one from scratch was a bad idea.
  • To solve this issue currently I am trying to fuse two plugins
    • JDERobot base plugin for the ardrone.
    • Hector gazebo plugin for quadrotor.
