For a grad project of mine, I have been trying to get a Kinect interfaced with an Ardrone, for the purpose of some 3D mapping and SLAM. I am entirely new to ros, so I downloaded the VM with Ubuntu Precise and groovy that is hosted on the site. However, now I am trying to get a SLAM api to work. I've tried ccny_rgbg and rgbdslam and found (I think) that both are incompatible with groovy/have caused tremendous amounts of errors upon installation.

Does anyone know of a way to get SLAM working with a Kinect, preferably with ros groovy, but the SLAM API need not be a ros node. I'll gladly take plain old C++ libraries.

Just out of curiosity, how are you mounting a Kinect on an AR Drone? I wouldn't think they'd be able to provide sufficient lift.

We've tested that it should work. The problem is getting the code to work :/
