Wael R. Abdulmajeed, Revan Zuhair Mansoor . Implementing Kinect Sensor for Building 3D Maps of Indoor Environments. International Journal of Computer Applications. 86, 8 ( January 2014), 18-22. DOI=10.5120/15005-3182
This paper describes modern technique of mapping. This work involved two cases study; in both cases mobile robot navigated manually and used Kinect sensor for built map of indoor environment. pioneer 3-dx is the robot used in this projects that is programmed by using the Advanced Robotics Interface for Applications (ARIA) that program with C++ package ( Visual C++. Net ), and ARNetworking software is used for setup Wireless TCP/IP Ethernet-to-Serial connection between robot and PC. The programs that are used for kinect sensor are OpenNI/NITE to make it work with PC and also we used Skanect software for building 3d map for environment.
