On-board localization (VIO) and SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) on current OAK cameras (RVC2) aren’t yet supported.

Our upcoming Series 3 OAK cameras with RVC3 have Quad-core ARM A53 1.5GHz integrated into the VPU. There will be an open-source SLAM implementation on the RVC3. Users are be able to run custom containarized apps on the ARM, which 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.
