This paper presents the use of an external vison-based positioning system for navigation and flight control of micro aerial vehicles. The motion capture system Optitrack is used to localize the vehicle which is a nano-quadcopter Crazyflie 2.0. An interface was created to pass positioning data to the Robot Operating Software (ROS). ROS acts as communication layer to bridge between Optitrack and available control nodes for Crazyflie 2.0 platforms.
