Hey everyone! I need to launch rtabmap with a stereocamera (NOT kinect!). I also have odometry from other sources (imu and wheel odometry). I want to use the latter to enhance the quality of stereo registration and mapping.

As shown in the link it is possible to use kinect + other odometry source. However, for the stereocamera, there are no examples of how to use outer odometry.

My question is, is that possible, and if it is, how I I do it? Your replies are much appreciated!

Yes it is possible, take a look at the 3.7 Stereo B section of your link above. You need to combine your odometry sources before connecting it to rtabmap (the blue link with nav_mgs/Odometry). The blue links over rtabmap node are used for loop closure detection and to generate the 3D point cloud.
