I'm trying to integrate RGB-D SLAM with the Hector Quadrotor model simulation on Gazebo. The idea is to launch the model of the quadrotor with a kinect and use the visual data recovered by the simulated camera in the running RGB-D SLAM. What's supposed to be done so this can function right? What topics should be called in each launched file so can RGB-D SLAM Bcan receive data from the simulated Gazebo Kinect?
Thank you! Best regards

I have tried to do the same thing, i got it working (although there is some issues). It required to resolve all dependancy issues and to migrate some old packages into Hydro distro, if you're still interested I could give a few pointers..

Hi there! Off course, I'm still interested. Can you please give me some tips, maybe even post some packages to download and use them on Hydro? So you are able to use RGB-D SLAM and Hector Quadrotor both on Hydro? I will need RGBD-SLAM running on Ubuntu ARM. Thank you

Yes i'm able to use them on hydro. I can provide updated source code of rgbdslam package to be able to compile on ROS hydro, i will provide the info today. But you want it on ARM? simulator on arm should be a real pain to setup and probably will be of poor performance

The only thing I want for ARM is the RGB-D SLAM package, since I will be using visual stream data for navigation of a real quad. But first I need to put the simulation correctly working on Hydro so that I can make a port of the used algorithms on a Odroid board.

I posted an answer with link to repo, mark it as answered if it helps :) Let me know if you get any results. i am also working on a quadrotor simulation, only i'm using stereo camera only instead of kinect
