First of all, what exactly are you building? Which sensors do you have?

Generally speaking, your robot will need to publish the tf transformations of the base and odometry. Also, the transformation between the base and the image sensor you have (it can be a laser rangefinder, Kinect, or others). If you have a Kinect, you will need to transform the pointcloud in a laserscan (please refer to this package )

Then, try some SLAM algorithms. I suggest GMapping to get started since it's well maintained and cover most of the situations

Hi, I intend to do something similar. My main SLAM sensor will be a Scanse Sweep Lidar. The Raspberry Pi 3 and Sweep sensor will ride on a tracked DAGU Rover 5 chassis controlled by a Beagleboard Blue board running the ArduRover autopilot. The rover will have a GPS and compass for outdoor missions.

Do you have the right sensor? Lidar, rp-laser? Motor Encoders?
