map.simplemap [-q] [-w] [--] [--version] [-h]

carmen2simplemap --help


carmen2simplemap is a command-line application to convert a CARMEN robotic dataset (with corrected poses already in it) into the "simplemap" file format, which can be then used to build metric maps (points, occupancy grids, etc.).

  Output GZ-compress level (optional)
-i <carmen.log>,  --input <carmen.log>
  (required)  Input dataset (required) (*.log)
-o <map.simplemap>,  --output <map.simplemap>
