We have released two open source versions of RatSLAM that can be used as part of a robot navigation system or to process your own datasets. A good description of how the code works, how to tune the few parameters and the 3 provided datasets is available in the OpenRatSLAM paper. Please cite this paper if you use the code.
The code is maintained by Dr David Ball.
The RatSLAM project has received funding from various funding bodies, as listed here:
