Hi,i am an undergraduate and i want to do my thesis on SLAM implementation with Kinect(if any way possible). But the thing is,i am getting lost searching the net for the summary of the recent SLAM implementations using kinect and the current shortcomings of the algorithms for kinect.So,the things i need to know are-

1.Recent SLAM implementations using kinect 2.Their current shortcomings 3.Current improvement research on SLAM using kinect 4.And,most importantly.... " A GOOD DISCUSSION ON "SLAM WITH KINECT" "

u see that i am kinda lost already.So, can anyone please help me out ??

I dont think this is a 'suitable' topic for a final year project and even worse if there is no graduate student guiding u..

I recently posted about a number of open source implementations of Kinect-Based SLAM on my blog. That said, I would agree with others that this is a pretty hard problem. You might consider breaking off something less ambitious that builds on other people's work and still lets you explore a number of interesting things, rather than trying to create an entire implementation.

I agree with tianb03. The SLAM is a topic not that easy (of course it can be easy to understand if you only look to the general principe).

If however you wish to continue in this way, you could have a look at the package ccny rgbd.

Good luck,

Bests regards,
