Hi, I am using rtabmap_ros package for mapping in simulation. The problem is that I move the robot arround and it does the mapping perfectly but it also prints its path behind it. And when i reopen the map using Rtabmap interface, this path shows as a colored line. Pleae let me know what is it and how can I avoid that from printing?

Hi,

For the first part, do you mean in RVIZ? Depending on your rviz config, there is maybe a MapGraph or Path display enabled that shows the path of the robot, so just disable it.

In rtabmapviz or rtabmap standalone interface, you can hide the map's graph (the path you are seeing in 3D Map view) by unchecking "Show graph" at the bottom of Preferences->3D Rendering panel. For the Graph view, right-click on it and select "Hide graph".

cheers,
Mathieu

I have another question, I can hide the path you suggested but there is still some sort of track in rtabmap interface which shows dark grey spots. it also shows in RVIZ. Could you please let me know what is it and how to get rid of it.

Can you update the question with a screenshot of this? Not sure what you are meaning.

this picture shows the dark patches after removing the map path as you suggested.
