RTAB-Map in ROS 101 Python
Learn how to use the rtabmap_ros package for performing RGB-D SLAM
RTAB-Map (Real-Time Appearance-Based Mapping) is an RGB-D SLAM approach based on a loop closure detector.
The loop closure detector uses a bag-of-words approach in order to determinate if a new image detected by an RGB-D sensor is from a new location or from a location that has been already visited.
Of course, this is a very summarized explanation. You will get more details on how this loop closure detector works inside this Course.
