Kinect sensor doing Hector Slam

Hi all. I'm currently doing a project in school regarding 2D mapping. I'm given a Kinect only. After some trying, I'm able to get a map out of it, using hector_slam and fake_laser codes. However, with any fast movement ( actually not that fast ), the map will just be totally ruined. Moreover, even if the kinect is stationary, it will appear to be vibrating. During the process of mapping, it is also very prone to drifting which caused distortion to the map. May someone please tell me how can I improve on this, will an IMU improve the process of mapping? My task is to do something similar to this : link text, but using a Kinect instead. Help and guidance will be extremely appreciated as this project is very important to me.
