I have a LIDAR-light v2 sensor that attached to i2c port of the beaglebone black that run ROS indigo on ubuntu 14.04 LTS .Is that sensor good for get data to process on tiny SLAM algorithm on ROS?

Do you have a link to the lidar you use? Most slam algorithms need a lidar that covers multiple angles.

@kaviranga As the comment above says, you can't do SLAM with a single laser beam. You'll have to buy something like a RP-LIDAR or an XV-11 LIDAR or wait for the Sweep ( )

@Humpelstilzchen This is the link for that sensor information page LIDAR-Lite v2

@spmaniato LIDAR-light v2 can be converted into RPI lidar after connecting to a rotational bed . So I've build it and got good results at the 300 rpm.

@spmaniato This is the i2c example of lIdarLite Scanner hector_slam_wreck
