Is there any instruction on how to use hector_slam with the Lidar Lite V 2 assuming that the Lidar is rotating 360 degree continuously. I have install ROS indigo on my Raspberry Pi 2 and complete the tutorial for hector_slam. I am just stuck on how to make hector_slam generate the bag file for mapping.

Thank you.

I am also trying to use lidar lite v2 rotating 360 but with gmapping. Can you guide me how have you communicated the rotating behavior in your mapping node (i.e. hector_slam).

its some time ago that i've worked with hector slam, but normally you only need to publish a message /scan message with your lidar and set this topic in your hector-launch file. when hector_slam is started you should see that the /map topic is published (also viewable in rviz)
