Installation

ROS distribution

RTAB-Map is released as binaries in the ROS distribution. * Lunar

    $ sudo apt-get install ros-lunar-rtabmap-ros

  • Kinetic
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  • Jade
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-rtabmap-ros

  • Indigo
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros

  • Hydro:
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rtabmap-ros

* Note that rtabmap_ros Hydro binaries are stuck at version 0.8.12. To use the latest version, see [Build from source](https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros#build-from-source) below.

When launching rtabmap_ros's nodes, if you have the error error while loading shared libraries..., add the next line at the end of your ~/.bashrc to fix it:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

Build from source

This section shows how to install RTAB-Map ros-pkg on ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Catkin build). RTAB-Map works only with the PCL >=1.7, which is the default version installed with ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Fuerte and Groovy are not supported).

  • The next instructions assume that you have set up your ROS workspace using this tutorial. I will use kinetic prefix for convenience, but it should work with Hydro, Indigo, Jade and Lunar. The workspace path is ~/catkin_ws and your ~/.bashrc contains:
    $ source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
    $ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

  1. Required dependencies
    • The easiest way to get all them (Qt, PCL, VTK, OpenCV, ...) is to install/uninstall rtabmap binaries:
          $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros
          $ sudo apt-get remove ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  1. Optional dependencies
    • If you want SURF/SIFT on Indigo/Jade (Hydro has already SIFT/SURF), you have to build OpenCV from source to have access to nonfree module. Install it in /usr/local (default) and the rtabmap library should link with it instead of the one installed in ROS.
      • On Indigo/Jade, I recommend to use latest 2.4 version (2.4.11) and build it from source following these instructions. RTAB-Map can build with OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV2. If you want OpenCV3, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV3.
      • On Kinetic/Lunar, I recommend to use OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module already installed by ROS. You can also install OpenCV2, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV3. Thus if you want OpenCV2 on Kinetic/Lunar, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV2.
* g2o: Use directly the binaries `ros-kinetic-libg2o`. However, [this g2o version](https://github.com/felixendres/g2o/tree/c++03) (c++03 branch) built from source may be faster than the binaries (install `libsuitesparse-dev` before building `g2o`) and would be [required to avoid some crashes](http://official-rtab-map-forum.67519.x6.nabble.com/ROS-2D-occupancy-grid-tp1204p1215.html). To build RTAB-Map against [latest official g2o version](https://github.com/RainerKuemmerle/g2o) built from source, g2o should be built with `-DBUILD_WITH_MARCH_NATIVE=OFF` to avoid some segmentation faults caused by Eigen.

* [GTSAM](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam): Follow installation instructions from [here](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam/#quickstart). RTAB-Map needs latest version from source, it will **not build** with 3.2.1. Set cmake variable `GTSAM_USE_SYSTEM_EIGEN=ON` to make sure the same Eigen version is used across all dependencies to avoid crashes.
        git clone https://bitbucket.org/gtborg/gtsam.git

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Install RTAB-Map ros-pkg in your src folder of your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j1

* Use `catkin_make -j1` if compilation requires more RAM than you have (e.g., some files require up to ~1.8 GB to build).

Build from source for Nvidia Jetson with OpenCV 4 Tegra

To use rtabmap_ros on Jetson, you can follow the instructions above if you don't care if OpenCV is built for Tegra. However, if you want rtabmap to use OpenCV 4 Tegra, we must re-build vision_opencv stack from source too to avoid conflicts with vision_opencv stack binaries from ros (which are linked on a not optimized version of OpenCV). Here are the steps: 1. Install JetPack with OpenCV on the Jetson. 2. Do steps 1.2 and 1.3 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu 3. Install non-opencv dependent ros packages:

* `sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ros-base ros-kinetic-image-transport ros-kinetic-tf ros-kinetic-tf-conversions ros-kinetic-eigen-conversions ros-kinetic-laser-geometry ros-kinetic-pcl-conversions ros-kinetic-pcl-ros ros-kinetic-move-base-msgs ros-kinetic-rviz ros-kinetic-octomap-ros ros-kinetic-move-base libhdf5-openmpi-dev libsuitesparse-dev`
  1. Do step 1.6 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu
  2. Create your catkin workspace
  3. Optional: Install g2o and/or GTSAM dependencies as above (increase visual odometry and graph optimization accuracy).
  4. To avoid libGL undefined errors:
     $ cd /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/
     $ sudo ln -sf tegra/libGL.so libGL.so

  1. To avoid libvtkproj4 errors:
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/libvtkproj4.so
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkproj4-6.2.so.6.2.0

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Clone vision_opencv, image_transport_plugins and rtabmap_ros packages in your catkin_ws:
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/vision_opencv src/vision_opencv
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/image_transport_plugins.git src/image_transport_plugins
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j2

rtabmap_ros Build Status

RTAB-Map's ROS package.

For more information, demos and tutorials about this package, visit rtabmap_ros page on ROS wiki.

For the RTAB-Map libraries and standalone application, visit RTAB-Map's home page or RTAB-Map's wiki.

Installation

ROS distribution

RTAB-Map is released as binaries in the ROS distribution. * Lunar

    $ sudo apt-get install ros-lunar-rtabmap-ros

  • Kinetic
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  • Jade
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-rtabmap-ros

  • Indigo
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros

  • Hydro:
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rtabmap-ros

* Note that rtabmap_ros Hydro binaries are stuck at version 0.8.12. To use the latest version, see [Build from source](https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros#build-from-source) below.

When launching rtabmap_ros's nodes, if you have the error error while loading shared libraries..., add the next line at the end of your ~/.bashrc to fix it:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

Build from source

This section shows how to install RTAB-Map ros-pkg on ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Catkin build). RTAB-Map works only with the PCL >=1.7, which is the default version installed with ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Fuerte and Groovy are not supported).

  • The next instructions assume that you have set up your ROS workspace using this tutorial. I will use kinetic prefix for convenience, but it should work with Hydro, Indigo, Jade and Lunar. The workspace path is ~/catkin_ws and your ~/.bashrc contains:
    $ source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
    $ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

  1. Required dependencies
    • The easiest way to get all them (Qt, PCL, VTK, OpenCV, ...) is to install/uninstall rtabmap binaries:
          $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros
          $ sudo apt-get remove ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  1. Optional dependencies
    • If you want SURF/SIFT on Indigo/Jade (Hydro has already SIFT/SURF), you have to build OpenCV from source to have access to nonfree module. Install it in /usr/local (default) and the rtabmap library should link with it instead of the one installed in ROS.
      • On Indigo/Jade, I recommend to use latest 2.4 version (2.4.11) and build it from source following these instructions. RTAB-Map can build with OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV2. If you want OpenCV3, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV3.
      • On Kinetic/Lunar, I recommend to use OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module already installed by ROS. You can also install OpenCV2, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV3. Thus if you want OpenCV2 on Kinetic/Lunar, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV2.
* g2o: Use directly the binaries `ros-kinetic-libg2o`. However, [this g2o version](https://github.com/felixendres/g2o/tree/c++03) (c++03 branch) built from source may be faster than the binaries (install `libsuitesparse-dev` before building `g2o`) and would be [required to avoid some crashes](http://official-rtab-map-forum.67519.x6.nabble.com/ROS-2D-occupancy-grid-tp1204p1215.html). To build RTAB-Map against [latest official g2o version](https://github.com/RainerKuemmerle/g2o) built from source, g2o should be built with `-DBUILD_WITH_MARCH_NATIVE=OFF` to avoid some segmentation faults caused by Eigen.

* [GTSAM](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam): Follow installation instructions from [here](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam/#quickstart). RTAB-Map needs latest version from source, it will **not build** with 3.2.1. Set cmake variable `GTSAM_USE_SYSTEM_EIGEN=ON` to make sure the same Eigen version is used across all dependencies to avoid crashes.
        git clone https://bitbucket.org/gtborg/gtsam.git

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Install RTAB-Map ros-pkg in your src folder of your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j1

* Use `catkin_make -j1` if compilation requires more RAM than you have (e.g., some files require up to ~1.8 GB to build).

Build from source for Nvidia Jetson with OpenCV 4 Tegra

To use rtabmap_ros on Jetson, you can follow the instructions above if you don't care if OpenCV is built for Tegra. However, if you want rtabmap to use OpenCV 4 Tegra, we must re-build vision_opencv stack from source too to avoid conflicts with vision_opencv stack binaries from ros (which are linked on a not optimized version of OpenCV). Here are the steps: 1. Install JetPack with OpenCV on the Jetson. 2. Do steps 1.2 and 1.3 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu 3. Install non-opencv dependent ros packages:

* `sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ros-base ros-kinetic-image-transport ros-kinetic-tf ros-kinetic-tf-conversions ros-kinetic-eigen-conversions ros-kinetic-laser-geometry ros-kinetic-pcl-conversions ros-kinetic-pcl-ros ros-kinetic-move-base-msgs ros-kinetic-rviz ros-kinetic-octomap-ros ros-kinetic-move-base libhdf5-openmpi-dev libsuitesparse-dev`
  1. Do step 1.6 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu
  2. Create your catkin workspace
  3. Optional: Install g2o and/or GTSAM dependencies as above (increase visual odometry and graph optimization accuracy).
  4. To avoid libGL undefined errors:
     $ cd /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/
     $ sudo ln -sf tegra/libGL.so libGL.so

  1. To avoid libvtkproj4 errors:
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/libvtkproj4.so
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkproj4-6.2.so.6.2.0

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Clone vision_opencv, image_transport_plugins and rtabmap_ros packages in your catkin_ws:
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/vision_opencv src/vision_opencv
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/image_transport_plugins.git src/image_transport_plugins
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j2

rtabmap_ros Build Status

RTAB-Map's ROS package.

For more information, demos and tutorials about this package, visit rtabmap_ros page on ROS wiki.

For the RTAB-Map libraries and standalone application, visit RTAB-Map's home page or RTAB-Map's wiki.

Installation

ROS distribution

RTAB-Map is released as binaries in the ROS distribution. * Lunar

    $ sudo apt-get install ros-lunar-rtabmap-ros

  • Kinetic
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  • Jade
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-rtabmap-ros

  • Indigo
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros

  • Hydro:
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rtabmap-ros

* Note that rtabmap_ros Hydro binaries are stuck at version 0.8.12. To use the latest version, see [Build from source](https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros#build-from-source) below.

When launching rtabmap_ros's nodes, if you have the error error while loading shared libraries..., add the next line at the end of your ~/.bashrc to fix it:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

Build from source

This section shows how to install RTAB-Map ros-pkg on ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Catkin build). RTAB-Map works only with the PCL >=1.7, which is the default version installed with ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Fuerte and Groovy are not supported).

  • The next instructions assume that you have set up your ROS workspace using this tutorial. I will use kinetic prefix for convenience, but it should work with Hydro, Indigo, Jade and Lunar. The workspace path is ~/catkin_ws and your ~/.bashrc contains:
    $ source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
    $ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

  1. Required dependencies
    • The easiest way to get all them (Qt, PCL, VTK, OpenCV, ...) is to install/uninstall rtabmap binaries:
          $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros
          $ sudo apt-get remove ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  1. Optional dependencies
    • If you want SURF/SIFT on Indigo/Jade (Hydro has already SIFT/SURF), you have to build OpenCV from source to have access to nonfree module. Install it in /usr/local (default) and the rtabmap library should link with it instead of the one installed in ROS.
      • On Indigo/Jade, I recommend to use latest 2.4 version (2.4.11) and build it from source following these instructions. RTAB-Map can build with OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV2. If you want OpenCV3, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV3.
      • On Kinetic/Lunar, I recommend to use OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module already installed by ROS. You can also install OpenCV2, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV3. Thus if you want OpenCV2 on Kinetic/Lunar, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV2.
* g2o: Use directly the binaries `ros-kinetic-libg2o`. However, [this g2o version](https://github.com/felixendres/g2o/tree/c++03) (c++03 branch) built from source may be faster than the binaries (install `libsuitesparse-dev` before building `g2o`) and would be [required to avoid some crashes](http://official-rtab-map-forum.67519.x6.nabble.com/ROS-2D-occupancy-grid-tp1204p1215.html). To build RTAB-Map against [latest official g2o version](https://github.com/RainerKuemmerle/g2o) built from source, g2o should be built with `-DBUILD_WITH_MARCH_NATIVE=OFF` to avoid some segmentation faults caused by Eigen.

* [GTSAM](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam): Follow installation instructions from [here](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam/#quickstart). RTAB-Map needs latest version from source, it will **not build** with 3.2.1. Set cmake variable `GTSAM_USE_SYSTEM_EIGEN=ON` to make sure the same Eigen version is used across all dependencies to avoid crashes.
        git clone https://bitbucket.org/gtborg/gtsam.git

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Install RTAB-Map ros-pkg in your src folder of your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j1

* Use `catkin_make -j1` if compilation requires more RAM than you have (e.g., some files require up to ~1.8 GB to build).

Build from source for Nvidia Jetson with OpenCV 4 Tegra

To use rtabmap_ros on Jetson, you can follow the instructions above if you don't care if OpenCV is built for Tegra. However, if you want rtabmap to use OpenCV 4 Tegra, we must re-build vision_opencv stack from source too to avoid conflicts with vision_opencv stack binaries from ros (which are linked on a not optimized version of OpenCV). Here are the steps: 1. Install JetPack with OpenCV on the Jetson. 2. Do steps 1.2 and 1.3 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu 3. Install non-opencv dependent ros packages:

* `sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ros-base ros-kinetic-image-transport ros-kinetic-tf ros-kinetic-tf-conversions ros-kinetic-eigen-conversions ros-kinetic-laser-geometry ros-kinetic-pcl-conversions ros-kinetic-pcl-ros ros-kinetic-move-base-msgs ros-kinetic-rviz ros-kinetic-octomap-ros ros-kinetic-move-base libhdf5-openmpi-dev libsuitesparse-dev`
  1. Do step 1.6 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu
  2. Create your catkin workspace
  3. Optional: Install g2o and/or GTSAM dependencies as above (increase visual odometry and graph optimization accuracy).
  4. To avoid libGL undefined errors:
     $ cd /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/
     $ sudo ln -sf tegra/libGL.so libGL.so

  1. To avoid libvtkproj4 errors:
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/libvtkproj4.so
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkproj4-6.2.so.6.2.0

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Clone vision_opencv, image_transport_plugins and rtabmap_ros packages in your catkin_ws:
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/vision_opencv src/vision_opencv
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/image_transport_plugins.git src/image_transport_plugins
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j2

rtabmap_ros Build Status

RTAB-Map's ROS package.

For more information, demos and tutorials about this package, visit rtabmap_ros page on ROS wiki.

For the RTAB-Map libraries and standalone application, visit RTAB-Map's home page or RTAB-Map's wiki.

Installation

ROS distribution

RTAB-Map is released as binaries in the ROS distribution. * Lunar

    $ sudo apt-get install ros-lunar-rtabmap-ros

  • Kinetic
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  • Jade
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-rtabmap-ros

  • Indigo
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros

  • Hydro:
    $ sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rtabmap-ros

* Note that rtabmap_ros Hydro binaries are stuck at version 0.8.12. To use the latest version, see [Build from source](https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros#build-from-source) below.

When launching rtabmap_ros's nodes, if you have the error error while loading shared libraries..., add the next line at the end of your ~/.bashrc to fix it:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

Build from source

This section shows how to install RTAB-Map ros-pkg on ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Catkin build). RTAB-Map works only with the PCL >=1.7, which is the default version installed with ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic/Lunar (Fuerte and Groovy are not supported).

  • The next instructions assume that you have set up your ROS workspace using this tutorial. I will use kinetic prefix for convenience, but it should work with Hydro, Indigo, Jade and Lunar. The workspace path is ~/catkin_ws and your ~/.bashrc contains:
    $ source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
    $ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

  1. Required dependencies
    • The easiest way to get all them (Qt, PCL, VTK, OpenCV, ...) is to install/uninstall rtabmap binaries:
          $ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros
          $ sudo apt-get remove ros-kinetic-rtabmap ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  1. Optional dependencies
    • If you want SURF/SIFT on Indigo/Jade (Hydro has already SIFT/SURF), you have to build OpenCV from source to have access to nonfree module. Install it in /usr/local (default) and the rtabmap library should link with it instead of the one installed in ROS.
      • On Indigo/Jade, I recommend to use latest 2.4 version (2.4.11) and build it from source following these instructions. RTAB-Map can build with OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV2. If you want OpenCV3, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV3.
      • On Kinetic/Lunar, I recommend to use OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module already installed by ROS. You can also install OpenCV2, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV3. Thus if you want OpenCV2 on Kinetic/Lunar, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV2.
* g2o: Use directly the binaries `ros-kinetic-libg2o`. However, [this g2o version](https://github.com/felixendres/g2o/tree/c++03) (c++03 branch) built from source may be faster than the binaries (install `libsuitesparse-dev` before building `g2o`) and would be [required to avoid some crashes](http://official-rtab-map-forum.67519.x6.nabble.com/ROS-2D-occupancy-grid-tp1204p1215.html). To build RTAB-Map against [latest official g2o version](https://github.com/RainerKuemmerle/g2o) built from source, g2o should be built with `-DBUILD_WITH_MARCH_NATIVE=OFF` to avoid some segmentation faults caused by Eigen.

* [GTSAM](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam): Follow installation instructions from [here](https://collab.cc.gatech.edu/borg/gtsam/#quickstart). RTAB-Map needs latest version from source, it will **not build** with 3.2.1. Set cmake variable `GTSAM_USE_SYSTEM_EIGEN=ON` to make sure the same Eigen version is used across all dependencies to avoid crashes.
        git clone https://bitbucket.org/gtborg/gtsam.git

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Install RTAB-Map ros-pkg in your src folder of your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j1

* Use `catkin_make -j1` if compilation requires more RAM than you have (e.g., some files require up to ~1.8 GB to build).

Build from source for Nvidia Jetson with OpenCV 4 Tegra

To use rtabmap_ros on Jetson, you can follow the instructions above if you don't care if OpenCV is built for Tegra. However, if you want rtabmap to use OpenCV 4 Tegra, we must re-build vision_opencv stack from source too to avoid conflicts with vision_opencv stack binaries from ros (which are linked on a not optimized version of OpenCV). Here are the steps: 1. Install JetPack with OpenCV on the Jetson. 2. Do steps 1.2 and 1.3 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu 3. Install non-opencv dependent ros packages:

* `sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ros-base ros-kinetic-image-transport ros-kinetic-tf ros-kinetic-tf-conversions ros-kinetic-eigen-conversions ros-kinetic-laser-geometry ros-kinetic-pcl-conversions ros-kinetic-pcl-ros ros-kinetic-move-base-msgs ros-kinetic-rviz ros-kinetic-octomap-ros ros-kinetic-move-base libhdf5-openmpi-dev libsuitesparse-dev`
  1. Do step 1.6 from http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installation/Ubuntu
  2. Create your catkin workspace
  3. Optional: Install g2o and/or GTSAM dependencies as above (increase visual odometry and graph optimization accuracy).
  4. To avoid libGL undefined errors:
     $ cd /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/
     $ sudo ln -sf tegra/libGL.so libGL.so

  1. To avoid libvtkproj4 errors:
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/libvtkproj4.so
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libvtkproj4-6.2.so.6.2.0

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
    $ cd ~
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
    $ cd rtabmap/build
    $ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

  1. Clone vision_opencv, image_transport_plugins and rtabmap_ros packages in your catkin_ws:
    $ cd ~/catkin_ws
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/vision_opencv src/vision_opencv
    $ git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/image_transport_plugins.git src/image_transport_plugins
    $ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros src/rtabmap_ros
    $ catkin_make -j2

rtabmap_ros

RTAB-Map's ROS package.

For more information, demos and tutorials about this package, visit rtabmap_ros page on ROS wiki.

For the RTAB-Map libraries and standalone application, visit RTAB-Map's home page or RTAB-Map's wiki.

Installation

ROS distribution

RTAB-Map is released as binaries in the ROS distribution. For latest binaries, use ros-shadow-fixed repository. * Kinetic

$ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rtabmap-ros

  • Jade
$ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-rtabmap-ros

  • Indigo
$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros

  • Hydro:
$ sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rtabmap-ros

  • Note that rtabmap_ros Hydro binaries are stuck at version 0.8.12. To use the latest version, see Build from source below.

When launching rtabmap_ros's nodes, if you have the error error while loading shared libraries..., add the next line at the end of your ~/.bashrc to fix it:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

Build from source

This section shows how to install RTAB-Map ros-pkg on ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic (Catkin build). RTAB-Map works only with the PCL 1.7, which is the default version installed with ROS Hydro/Indigo/Jade/Kinetic (Fuerte and Groovy are not supported).

  • The next instructions assume that you have set up your ROS workspace using this tutorial. I will use kinetic prefix for convenience, but it should work with Hydro, Indigo and Jade. The workspace path is ~/catkin_ws and your ~/.bashrc contains:
$ source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
$ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

  • Make sure you don't have the binaries installed too (if you tried them before):
$ sudo apt-get remove ros-kinetic-rtabmap

  1. Optional dependencies
    • If you want SURF/SIFT on Indigo/Jade/Kinetic (Hydro has already SIFT/SURF), you have to build OpenCV from source to have access to nonfree module. Install it in /usr/local (default) and the rtabmap library should link with it instead of the one installed in ROS. I recommend to use latest 2.4 version (2.4.11) and build it from source following these instructions. RTAB-Map can build with OpenCV3+xfeatures2d module, but rtabmap_ros package will have libraries conflict as cv-bridge is depending on OpenCV2. If you want OpenCV3, you should build ros vision-opencv package yourself (and all ros packages depending on it) so it can link on OpenCV3.
  • ROS (Qt, PCL, dc1394, OpenNI, OpenNI2, Freenect, g2o, Costmap2d, Rviz, Octomap, CvBridge). Note that I've found that latest g2o version built from source is faster (install libsuitesparse-dev before building g2o) and would be required to avoid some crashes.
$ sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev libpcl-1.7-all-dev libdc1394-dev ros-kinetic-openni-launch ros-kinetic-openni2-launch ros-kinetic-freenect-launch ros-kinetic-costmap-2d ros-kinetic-octomap-ros ros-kinetic-g2o ros-kinetic-rviz ros-kinetic-cv-bridge

  • GTSAM: Follow installation instructions from here. RTAB-Map needs latest version from source (git clone https://bitbucket.org/gtborg/gtsam.git), it will not build with 3.2.1.

  • cvsba: Follow installation instructions from here. Their installation is not standard CMake, you need these extra steps so RTAB-Map can find it:

$ mkdir /usr/local/lib/cmake/cvsba 
$ mv /usr/local/lib/cmake/Findcvsba.cmake /usr/local/lib/cmake/cvsba/cvsbaConfig.cmake

  1. Install RTAB-Map standalone libraries. Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel to cmake command below if you want to install in your Catkin's devel folder without sudo. Do not clone in your Catkin workspace.
$ cd ~
$ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
$ cd rtabmap/build
$ cmake ..  [<---double dots included]
$ make -j4
$ sudo make install

  1. Install RTAB-Map ros-pkg in your src folder of your Catkin workspace.
$ cd ~/catkin_ws
$ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros
$ catkin_make

Update to new version

$ cd rtabmap
$ git pull origin master
$ cd build
$ make
$ make install

$ roscd rtabmap_ros
$ git pull origin master
$ cd ~/catkin_ws
$ catkin_make

Installation

ROS distribution

RTAB-Map is released as binaries in the ROS distribution. * Indigo

$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rtabmap-ros

  • Hydro
$ sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rtabmap-ros

Build from source

This section shows how to install RTAB-Map ros-pkg on ROS Hydro/Indigo (Catkin build). RTAB-Map works only with the PCL 1.7, which is the default version installed with ROS Hydro/Indigo (Fuerte and Groovy are not supported). * Note for ROS Indigo: If you want SURF/SIFT, you have to build OpenCV from source to have access to nonfree module. Install it in /usr/local (default) and the rtabmap library should link with it instead of the one installed in ROS.

  • The next instructions assume that you have setup your ROS workspace using this tutorial. The workspace path is ~/catkin_ws and your ~/.bashrc contains:
source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash
source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

  1. First, you need to install the RTAB-Map standalone libraries (don't checkout in the Catkin workspace but install in your Catkin's devel folder).
$ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap.git rtabmap
$ cd rtabmap/build
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/catkin_ws/devel ..  [<---double dots included]
$ make -j4
$ make install

  1. Now install the RTAB-Map ros-pkg in your src folder of your Catkin workspace.
$ cd ~/catkin_ws
$ git clone https://github.com/introlab/rtabmap_ros.git src/rtabmap_ros
$ catkin_make

Update to new version

$ cd rtabmap
$ git pull origin master
$ cd build
$ make
$ make install

$ roscd rtabmap_ros
$ git pull origin master
$ cd ~/catkin_ws
$ catkin_make
