I am using an aerial vehicle that has a bottom camera (no kinect) and I am using it to detect an ARTag. It works perfect when it is only one, but now I need to add some more tags so they can be seen at different heights. I read that some people did that but I didn't find how, because I would like to define the sizes of all the possible markers but I can only define one.

What can I do? Use more than one pr2_indiv_no_kinect.launch file? My tags would be something like: image description

(i.e, one big tag and some small inside)

If I understand correctly, you'd like to put multiple tags in one world. You should be able to do this by creating multiple models, where each model has one tag.

I created that image and I created a Gazebo model with that image, but when I try to recognize the small images it doesn't work properly because the ar_track_alvar detector is expecting a 100cm x 100cm image (the biggest one has that size). How can I detect the smaller ones AND the bigger?
