Hi, everyone

I am using gmapping to build a map for an office room with a hokuyo laserscanner(UTM-30LX-EW), following the tutorial MappingFromLoggedData. The map I got seems incorrect, as shown below. It shows that the obstacles are putting in wrong position in the map. Is there something wrong with the tf for my robot? And how to check the problem? Thanks.

try changing gmapping parameters like laser max range and motion model params

If you have a Hokuyo laser, hector_slam is much better than gmapping for mapping purposes.
