SLAMcore ROS Melodic Demos and Tutorials

This repository contains packages to go alongside our dedicated demonstration tutorials which will allow you to get SLAMcore up and running with ROS Melodic in no time. The current example demonstrates how to integrate SLAMcore with the ROS Navigation Stack and was designed for a Kobuki mobile base, with a Jetson Xavier NX and RealSense D435i depth camera. Nevertheless, by following our Navigation Stack Integration Tutorial you will be able to modify the launch and config files in this repo to suit your setup.
