Hi all. I've been watching a lot of tutorials on slam and navigation. All of the tutorials(at least the ones I found), are using turtlebot simulation. I'm having trouble understanding how to implement this on a real robot. Is there any known tutorial on slam with a real robot? Such as as custom donkey car fitted with a lidar or some ultrasonic sensors or sth else?

Running SLAM on a real robot is more about what sensors are available rather than the exact platform. The donkey car just has a single camera by default, I believe, so you might want to use ORB SLAM, or maybe make it a bit easier for yourself and print out some ArUco tags to put around the environment and use fiducial_slam.

If, instead, you want to use lidar or sonar or an IMU or some other sensor or some combination of sensors, there are a lot more systems and packages out there.
