Package Description

The Robot Pose EKF package is used to estimate the 3D pose of a robot, based on (partial) pose measurements coming from different sources. It uses an extended Kalman filter with a 6D model (3D position and 3D orientation) to combine measurements from wheel odometry, IMU sensor and visual odometry. The basic idea is to offer loosely coupled integration with different sensors, where sensor signals are received as ROS messages.

1.14.4 (2018-06-19)

  • Merge pull request #713 from garethellis0/kinetic-devel Added handling for NaN linear.z components of GPS in robot_pose_ekf Added a check in odom_estimation_node.cpp that checks if linear.z values in the GPS odom message are NaN (something common in such messages), and if so, sets it to 0, and sets the corresponding variance to a very high value so we ignore it.
