I am trying to run VSLAM on Stereo Data. When trying to roslaunch stereo_vslam.launch, I'm getting this error message cannot launch node of type [vslam_system/stereo_vslam_node]: Cannot locate node of type [stereo_vslam_node] in package [vslam_system]. I cheched and found stereo_vslam_node was under vslam/bin, ans was not sure why ROS could not locate it?

I found a similar question posted earlier, and followed suggestions described in the "answer" section, but still got the same error message. Any advices will be appreciated.

Thanks CC

vslam is experimental research code. It is not actively being supported, but patches are welcome.

If you would like a robust method of localization and mapping with a stereo camera or kinect, use the 2D slam_gmapping stack. See the pointcloud_to_laserscan package from the turtlebot stack and the SLAM Gmapping with Kinect Tutorial for the turtlebot.
