Is it possible to install the algohritm SVO (Stereo Vision Odometry) in ROS Foxy ? Because I 've seen only the versions Indigo Melodic and Kinetic. In my case I have ROS Foxy in Ubuntu 20.03

Just to clarify are you looking for Stereo Video Odometry (SVO)? Your title says VOS so it's confusing.

You aren't alone in your search:

"A survey of ROS enabled Visual odometry (and VSLAM)" (from 2019, though):

"I've been trying to find a ROS2 package for visual odometry that publishes an odometry topic, and it turned out to be quite difficult. I decided to to this little write-up for others interested in the same thing, perhaps it'll make it easier for someone."

There are some newer resources available, though:

Yes the newest version it's for ROS2 Dashing as @ljaniec points out. You need to build it from source, not sure what issues you will have, there is not much information in the repo.
