If you dont have odomtery reading .. try looking into VSLAM or RGBD slam. They might not require odometry readings. It is based in vision. I havent used any of it but it might work so look into it.

The commonly used one is amcl.

AFAIK hector_slam doesn't support localization, yet. Only SLAM.

Can I use amcl without having Power and Sensor Board ?

I needs odometry from somewhere. If you really need localization instead of SLAM you could abuse hector_slam and interpret it's slam pose output as the odometry.
