and the Kinect options seems reasonable. It's advantageous due to it's design as a slam and image processing sensor. Please provide a tutorial on how to use kinect for slam. However I think kinect doesn't have hardware H264 encoding that would make it difficult to use with Beaglebone.

sudhanshu_mittal, I have IR Proximity sensors which I can easily connect to Beaglebone Black. Are they good choice for 2D slam? I think I'd need some kind of middleware to read their data in ROS through BBB pins. sarkar

Hello Everybody,

A ROS newbie here. I'm learning ROS and currently at the file system tutorials. I'm currently running ROS on 64-bit Ubuntu 12 and soon I'm going to install it on Beaglebone Black (Angstrom).

I have a Logitech C920 webcam with hardware H264. Please suggest me 2D slam technique which can be used with my webcam and is easy to learn.

Regards, sarkar

Since you have Logitech C920, which has hardware H264 encoding which is an awesome thing. For usb_cam you can try it by changing the value of pixel_format to H264. Change <param name="pixel_format" value="yuyv" /> to <param name="pixel_format" value="H264" />. That should work and you'll get high fps with low resource usage.
