How to avoid obstacles with Kinect xbox 360

Hello, i want to avoid obstacles with the Kinect Xbox 360 sensor. Currently, i can execute RtabMAP to making 3d maps and i can use visual odometry, but this is generated controlling my robot by my own. I want to add some autonomy to my robot, making possible moving the robot inside a room with obstacles (for example a box), avoiding these same.

How can i do that ? My idea is use only the kinect sensor, it is enough ?

Thank you for the attention !!

As you are using rtabmap, I would suggest that you take a look on this tutorial: , in particular Section 6 to try it in simulation.

Basically, what you are looking for is the navigationstack, see all useful tutorials here:

Thank you so much for your answer ! I tried run the section "5.If you don't have the robot". All works great but when i want to use 2dnav on rviz (2D NAV GOAL option), nothing happens, i don't see the red trace; do you know about this ? Thank you again.

Without the robot it is difficult to test navigation, I suggest to try the simulation examples.
