I am senior student at Aerospace Engineering. I am creating indoor ground robot and i want to do SLAM with RaspberryPi3 Pi camera and IMU sensor in indoor areas for improving my robotic level(i am a new). When i searched to web i founded ORBSLAM2 and i installed to my raspberry pi3 successfully but i don't ensure to is it possible it can do with just pi camera and imu sensor? If is it possible do you have any suggestion to read anything or keywords for search ? Regards

I think you will find it challenging to implement without any perception of depth. You would have to "fabricate" the environment based on 2D-computervision, providing pointcloud / laserscan to the stack.

The RPi probably lacks the computing power also; but that is an assumption based on experiences working with depth perception - which implies the amount of data published by these devices.

Don't take my word for anything, I'm just a couple of months into ROS myself.

thanks for your replay, do you can i get depth perception with opencv ?
