Hope this package will help:

It is an implementation of autonomous mapping with a turtlebot equipped with Kinect sensor.

If what you want to do is autonomous exploration, you might check the nav2d package. It is restricted to flat, 2-dimensional environments though.

Thank you @Sebastian Kasperski , But I want to create 3-D Map of surroundings. I maybe can create 3-D map when I run nav2d.

Then you need at least a 3D mapper. You could still use the exploration from nav2d, provided that your environment is more or less flat. If it's not, you should look for something else.
