Hi All!

I would like to create a map of an environment (2D or 3D) with turtlebot using Kinect. I want to use directly visual images for SLAM instead of fake laser sensor information. In this case, gmapping or hector mapping are useless for my thought.

So, is it possible to do this with any existing packages?

Actually, which packages are available for visual-SLAM on indigo?

For 3D mapping you can use rgbdslam_v2. Or rtabmap.

Agreed. BTW, according to my experience, rtabmap is definitely more efficient.
