Mapping and Localization

Design and deploy localization and mapping applications over ROS or ROS 2 network

ROS Toolbox enables you to design and deploy standalone applications for mapping and localization for autonomous systems over a ROS or ROS 2 network. You can either fetch sensor data from a simulated robot over the ROS network or use a recorded ROS bag data to build a map of the robot's environment using simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM).

SLAM uses localization, mapping and pose estimation algorithms with either camera or lidar data to simultaneously build a map of the robot's environment, and localize the robot in that environment at the same time.
