On-board localization (VIO) and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) on current OAK cameras (Movidius Myriad X VPU) aren’t yet supported.

Our upcoming Series 3 OAK cameras with Movidius Keem Bay will have Quad-core ARM A53 1.5GHz integrated into the VPU. We will likely port an open-source SLAM implementation to the Keem Bay. Having full access to the ARM will allow other companies (which specialize in VIO/SLAM) to port their software stacks to our cameras and license it.

Several SLAM projects that support OAK-D cameras:

You can also check out our #slam channel on our Discord server, where there are tons of useful information on how to perform SLAM with OAK cameras.
