this package will introduce how building a map by hector/gmapping with xbot.
- Maintainer status: developing
Page editor: Howe
- License: TODO
- Before navigation, we need make a map first, which let robot know current environment.
- Here we fuse Asus_xtion_pro depth data and rpldar distance data together to make a map. The advantage of using fusion data to build map is robot could efficiently record the outline of hanging objects and sloping things with wide angle into map.
- Then, you could fell free to chose a mapping method to made a map
- Firstly, you should install hector OR gmapping package for sure.
