Community meeting: Mapping in Gazebo

Hello community,

Let’s create some maps using Gazebo! :gazebo:

Mapping is the process of generating a representation of the environment which a mobile robot can use for autonomous navigation. It typically requires a robot to explore the physical space while running a SLAM algorithm in the background. However there are some inconveniences from this approach. It may be time consuming for very large environments and a bigger challenge is keeping the representation up-to-date with any changes in the physical layout of the space. This talk explores the idea of generating maps for navigation from digital twins of physical environments created using open-source tools such from Open-RMF and Gazebo.

Here’s the agenda:

  1. Latest Gazebo news: Addisu Taddese (Intrinsic)
  2. Mapping in digital twins for autonomous navigation in the real world (Yadunund Vijay, Intrinsic)
  3. Optional: Lighting talks

We opened a slot for short (3 minutes) lighting presentations. If you’re interested in talking about your Gazebo project contact me (caguero AT openrobotics DOT org) and I’ll book your slot.
