Hello, I'm a new user of ROS, Velodyne, etc. and I would like to know if there is a package/executable to apply SLAM to .pcap data acquired by Velodyne VLP-16 and then generate a point cloud? Is there someone here using this scanner to tell me what to do, where to search, etc.? Have someone implemented a code to apply SLAM to our .pcap data?
Thanks in advance,

You could take a horizontal slice out of the data and format like a planar laser scan message and use the slam packages meant for those kinds of lidars. Another option is to get the data into the right format to put into a RGBD slam package (kinfu?)- not sure if those would like 360 degree data.

Hello, I'm a new user of the velodyne VLP16, and I search the same application. Are you find more information about the 3d reconstruction from pcap file?
Thank you for sharing any relevant information Pascal

how is this going? I have the same problem. 1.-Start a vlp16 with ROS 2.-Configure GPS and Velodyne 3.-Construct a 3D map
