The frame IDs for sensors represent the coordinate frame origin for readings from that sensor, and most sensors report readings relative to the center of their transducer or other sensing element. Unless your sensor is mounted at exactly the same position as base_link, you should define a new frame for each sensor.

The frame naming is up to you, but most systems will use names like /ultrasonic1.
