3D SLAM and Waypoint Navigation Tutorials


This package supplies Sphinx-based tutorial content to assist you with setting up and using 3d SLAM and autonomous waypoint navigation. The tutorials topics are listed in the left column, and presented in the suggested reading order.


These tutorials assume that you are comfortable working with ROS. We recommend starting with our ROS tutorial if you are not familiar with ROS already.

Dependencies is a logical place for most users to start, as this is universally applicable. This includes dependencies for both SLAM and GPS Navigation.

SLAM is the starting points for 3d SLAM both in indoor and outdoor. It indludes discussion of the packages for indoor and outdoor 3d mapping alongside their paramters tuning.

Navigation is the starting points for waypoint navigation both in indoor and outdoor. It also includes sensor calibration and overall system parameter tuning.
