OctoMap v0.8 released, octomap_mapping stack now in cturtle .debs

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Announcement from Armin Hornung of Albert-Ludwigs-Universität

The OctoMap 3D mapping library is now available as precompiled .deb package for Ubuntu in the ROS cturtle and unstable repositories. The octomap_mapping stack contains the actual octomap package for ROS and a map server. Detailed API documentation is available at the wiki page under "Code API".

This coincides with the release of OctoMap v0.8, which the octomap_mapping stack now builds on. Compared to previous versions, the optimizations in OctoMap 0.8 significantly speed up map building and queries on the map. As always, we're curious to hear how you use OctoMap and if there are suggestions for further improvements.

Best regards,
Armin Hornung and Kai M. Wurm
