Hey everyone,

I've got some trouble with gmapping.

I'm Using a robot called "eddie" witch is quiet similar to the Turtlebot2e, a kinect is the only used Sensor in this case. I wrote some nodes to get the Navigation Stack running( such as an odometry_publisher...) For the SLAM i thought gmapping would be a good choice. I used the Parameters they use with the turtlebot, but i get really bad results.

At first i thought my odometry could be the poblem. But the Odometry is realy good, as you can see on this Map (made with sigma and lsigma = 0 -> gmapping just used odometry. the robot did 21m of distance to create that map, asswell as all in all a rotation of 47rad(7,5 revolutions)) image description

As soon as I change the sigma and lsigma back to a usefull value the resulst get as bad as this: (made with the turtlebot paramters) you can see the large jump in the top right corner. most of the time gmapping says something like: Scan Matching Failed, using odometry. Likelihood=-3889.53 lp:3.94415 2.44182 -0.742944

if it can match the scans, it often jumps as in this case: image description

I use a notebook with an i7 620M (1st generation). Things i've tried:

-Recording bag file and play it with 10% speed ( to be sure, the notebook has enough power for gmapping)

  • incresing particles and anglarUpdate

  • many many parameters changed, always worse than befor!

Has anyone an idea why that happens? Thank you all so much!
