I'm a little confused as to what you are asking. The pioneer 3dx should have odometry, which should supply the position (to an extent). You can use the kinect camera in place of a laser rangefinder (the Turtlebot worked this way). You should also look at this answer.

As for the pioneer software, you can use the p2os stack.

Let me know if you need anything else!

In Gazebo? I have no idea.... As for the real robot, I don't think that is achieved directly (though I could be wrong -* haven't used a Kinect in a while). Have you tried it?

Yes, a friend of mine has done it in the real robot. Thanks for your response

@allenh1 Do you know if there is a pkg in Ros wich provide just a kinect? because I would like to put just a kinect for example in x=1 y=1 z=1. Do you know if it exists?

To be honest, I'm still not clear as to what you want to do here... Maybe this?
