Look into the rgbd_slam package to do 3d slam using rgbd sensor like kinect. I am not sure if its currently maintained(fuerte version) since there is a new version of RGBDSLAM v2 for indigo and hydro already out. If you have problems you should better contact the developers of rgbd_slam package.

Apart from that there is an octomap package that builds 3d occupancy grid maps. The map implementation is based on an octree.

Thanks AlexR for the info.

I have tried to use rgbd_slam I have a problem when I execute:

$ rosdep install rgbdslam_freiburg

ERROR: Rosdep cannot find all required resources to answer your query
Missing resource rgbdslam_freiburg                                                                  
ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/fuerte/share/ros                                                               
ROS path [1]=/opt/ros/fuerte/share                                                                   
ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks

And I can not doing anymore.

I think RGBDSLAM v2 does not work in ROS fuerte, It says:


Ubuntu 12.04 - 13.04
ROS hydro
Problems may occur when using a version of the PCL library different from the ROS hydro version.

More ideas?
