Mini-Lab Mapping with Depth Camera


In this section we will present the mapping capability of the Mini-Lab with a different sensor than the previous tutorial. The robot is capable of using a depth camera to scan the environment.

Mapping procedure

Follow the previous tutorial about the mapping with a laser range finder. After spawning the robot and running the needed packages of the robot launch the Kinect_gmapping package to convert the scans of the camera to useable values in the mapping algorithms.

$ roslaunch minilab_navigaton kinect_gmapping.launch
