I have looked into this package in connection with implementing SLAM using a 2D Lidar mounted on a mobile robot. But somehow I can't figure out how to start with this package. I have a simulation environment created in Gazebo. I move the robot (2D lidar mounted) in a predefined trajectory. I want to estimate its pose and develop a map of it. If you can provide some suggestion for using this package for this purpose, will be very helpful.

SLAM is a problem solved in ROS multiple times. slam_toolbox is one of the newer ways to solve it and has probably a focus on performance rather than beginner-friendly documentation.

Some of the older slam approaches also have tutorials on how to get started:
