In this opportunity I want to know which is the best option to use and do SLAM with hector_mapping. I have 3 options: Hokuyo URG-04LX-UG01 (10Hz), RPLidar (max 10Hz), Hokuyo UST-10LX Scanning Laser Rangefinder (40Hz). I'm developing a project to merge OGMs (Occupancy Grid Map) from different robots, so I want to decide which is the best option to buy the best Lidar sensor. I know the importance of the Lidar scanning frequency to do SLAM and I know those sensors can do slam with hector_mapping, but those options differs in their prices. In fact, one Hokuyo UST10LX is equals to 5 RPLidar or 2 Hokuyo URG-04LX.
So, my question is, based on your wide and big expirience, Hokuyo URG-04LX has a good performance doing slam with hector_slam? RPLidar has a normal or good performance doing the same task?. I know Hokuyo UST-10LX is the best option for its specs (scanning frequency, over all) but I could get more robots with the others laser options. Take into account I don't care detection range, I just want to know is those options are enable for slam applications and do slam with hector_mapping.
Thank you in advance. I hope you can advise me.
