I'm on ROS Kinetic with a Turtlebot3 With a raspberry pi 3b+.

When mapping an area the robot should still be able to drive and make a map even if the robot loses connection for a while. Right now if the robot loses connection for a couple seconds the autonomous navigation stops working and the robots keeps moving and the map and position of the robot is not reliable. Whats the best way to handle connection losses of the robot when mapping? maybe the robot can create the map?

Run everything needed to do what you describe on the robot itself instead of your local system?

@gvdhoorn Thanks for the answer! I will look more in to that i guess. Hopefully its possible to run rviz and cartographer on Rasbian.

RViz would be an example of a node which is not needed to map. It's a client application, purely there for visualisation (in most cases).
