I am trying to make a SICK LMS511 work on ROS but I haven't been able to make it work. I am trying to use github /clearpathrobotics/laser_drivers/tree/hydro-devel with no result.

I tried moving the folder of the link above to the ROS path and then run the command rosmake in that folder. Then I tried with roslaunch launch/lms5xx.launch but I get this error:

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [sicktoolbox_wrapper2/sicklms_5xx]: can't locate node [sicklms_5xx] in package [sicktoolbox_wrapper2]

I know that the laser is well connected.

What should I do?

Thanks!

You should use Catkin to compile this package.

I highly recommend you to do at least the beginner tutorials :)

Seems that the node doesn't appear even after a catkin_make :(
