The first step of my project requires the robot to map the room autonomously. With my relatively fresh experience in robotics, I hoped to find this feature included in the Stretch Robot as well.
So far, I have understood that the Gmapping via stretch_navigation and the FUNMAP both are done via teleoperation first and then autonomous navigation is possible. I mention both packages since I will need the map as well as the 3D model that FUNMAP creates later on.
Has anyone extended the funmap or the stretch_navigation to allow autonomous creation of the map? If so, kindly share your work or approach!
