1.1. What is GSLAM?

  1. For SLAM developers : Everyone can develop their own SLAM implementation based on GSLAM and publish it as a plugin with open-source or not.
  2. For SLAM users : Applications are able to use different SLAM plugins with the same API without recompilation and implementations are loaded at runtime.

2. Documentation

Documentation: https://zdzhaoyong.github.io/GSLAM/

3. Start with GSLAM

3.1. Basic usages

Test modules with google test:

gslam tests --gtest_filter=*

Run a slam system with datasets:

gslam qviz orbslam play -dataset dataset_path

3.2. Supported Datasets

GSLAM now implemented serveral plugins for public available datasets. It is very easy to play different datasets with parameter "Dataset" setted:

# Play kitti with monocular mode
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/odomentry/color/00/mono.kitti

# Play kitti with stereo mode
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/odomentry/color/00/stereo.kitti

# Play TUM RGBD Dataset (associate.txt file prepared)
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/rgbd_dataset_freiburg1_360/.tumrgbd

# Play TUM Monocular (images unziped)
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/calib_narrowGamma_scene1/.tummono

# Play EuRoC Dataset with IMU frames
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/EuRoC/MH_01_easy/mav0/.euroc

# Play NPU DroneMap Dataset
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/DroneMap/phantom3-village/phantom3-village-kfs/.npudronemap
gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/DroneMap/phantom3-village/phantom3-village-unified/.npudronemap

The datasets are default to be played on realtime, and the play speed can be controled with "playspeed":

gslam qviz play -dataset <dataset_path>/odomentry/color/00/mono.kitti -playspeed 2.

The following dataset plugins are now implemented:

Name     Channels Description
KITTI Stereo,Pose
TUMMono Monocular
TUMRGBD RGBD,Pose
EuRoc IMU,Stereo
NPUDroneMap GPS,Monocular
CVMono Monocular Online camera or video dataset using opencv.

Users can also implement dataset plugins by own.

3.3. Implemented SLAM plugins
