Is there a way (or any example) to build a 2D map using Senz3D camera without using SLAM?

Thank you

You can use this driver - - to get a pointcloud from the camera. I'm not sure why it's not released as a ROS package, perhaps there are still issues to work out.

Sure, you can convert a single pointcloud into a flat 2D map. However without SLAM you will not be able to properly stitch multiple clouds together to obtain a combined map, so you will be limited by the sensor's FOV and occlusion.
