Hello Guys, I;m trying to use this package: http://www.ros.org/wiki/gmapping

with the eddie robot (parallax) using the eddiebot stack (Based on Turtlebot API) http://www.ros.org/wiki/eddiebot

I already have the bringup runing (kinect.launch and minimal.launch) but I would like to know how to get gmapping running

I dont know if it could be possible to use the gmapping code from the turtlebot and port it to work with eddie. http://www.ros.org/wiki/turtlebot_navigation/Tutorials/Build%20a%20map%20with%20SLAM

what should I do to port it?

if it could be possible to use the "turtlebot_navigation" package for this purposes.

what do I need to modify to make it work?

my idea is to modify only certain parameters for example in the launch file:

<launch> <include file="$(find eddie_bringup)/launch/3dsensor.launch"> <arg name="rgb_processing" value="false"/> <arg name="depth_registration" value="false"/> <arg name="depth_processing" value="false"/> </include>

<include file="$(find turtlebot_navigation)/launch/includes/_gmapping.launch"/>

<include file="$(find turtlebot_navigation)/launch/includes/_move_base.launch"/>

</launch>

to

<launch> <include file="$(find eddie_bringup)/launch/kinect.launch"> <arg name="rgb_processing" value="false"/> <arg name="depth_registration" value="false"/> <arg name="depth_processing" value="false"/> </include>

<include file="$(find eddie_navigation)/launch/includes/_gmapping.launch"/>

<include file="$(find eddie_navigation)/launch/includes/_move_base.launch"/>

</launch>

it could be as simple as that? since the eddiebot is using the turtlebot API's

thank you! Omar

Have you solved it? Which ros distribution are you using?
