Euclid SVO 2.0 Walkthrough

Version 2

    SVO 2.0 is a robust semi-direct SLAM by Prof. Davide Scaramuzza and the teams from UZH and ETH Zurich that works great for fisheye cameras. While it is not open-source, the teams provide binaries for Ubuntu that run on ROS. The complete algorithm includes bundle adjustment, but the binaries only include place recognition without bundle adjustment.

    With this short walkthrough you will be able to download, install and run SVO 2.0.
