I would like to fuse the IMU sensor data and the laser scans using the hector slam package. A EKF-based filter in the hector_localization stack can use the IMU data. The 6DOF filter estimated the pose . As far as I understand the tf generated by the filter can be used as a start for scan matching in hector_mapping. But Im missing some documentation and some help regarding using the hector_localization and hector_mapping together. So far I imp[implemented and working well the hector_mapping but I would like to take the advantages of the IMU datas and also use the hector_localization. Any help on this?

The question was closed as it was asked in 2013 and didn't see any activity when it was reviewed in 2015 (almost 3 years later).

If you're still having an issue, you could try to post a new question. Please include any relevant information.

Note that a lot of people use robot_localization now.
