Improvements To 3D Navigation Using Octomap And ROS

Armin Hornung made major improvements to the  OctoMap  3D mapping library. Scan insertions are now twice as fast as before for real-time map updates and tree traversals are now possible in a flexible and efficient manner using iterators. The new  ROS interface  provides conversions from most common ROS datatypes, and  Octomap server  was updated for incremental 3D mapping. Armin also worked on creating a dynamically updatable collision map for tabletop manipulation. The collider package uses OctoMap to provide map updates from laser and dense stereo sensors at a rate of about 10Hz. The complete summary is available here.
