I`m a newer to the ROS,and now I want to do the simulation on my computer with the kinect first,and the final purpose is to do navigation with kinect.So I hope anyone can share your precious experiences about how to do navigation with kinect by steps.
The more detailed, the better!

I trully want to know the steps of using ros to accompish the vision navigation with kinect.By the way,now I have a robot but not the one showed on the ros.org.

Thanks very much!!!

Using the kinect and doing a simulation are two different things. Do you have a kinect and do you wish to program it? Or do you wish to simulate kinnect data?

There is no way you can achieve navigation with just kinect. You will need a complete mobile robot to do that. Do you have a TurtleBot?

Please describe what you wish to do in detail.

Is it possible to use slam_gmapping with Kinect? I ask this because gmapping seems to use Laser scans where as Kinect publishes point clouds. Thanks.

The gmapping_demo.launch file uses the kinect to do the mapping. The kinect data are presented to the algorithm as though it is coming from a laser. In reality, it is only the point cloud data that is converted to Laser-like data. The answer to your question is yes.

You can just try rgbdslam.

If you have any questions, just feel free to ask.

By the way, please edit your original post to standard form (should not in box form). Box form is used for code or a lot of messages.Thank you~
