Some things to look out for:

  • Make sure the node names are different. If you copied and pasted launch file code, it could be happening that both nodes are started with the same name, which could lead to the first getting killed as soon as the second one is started.
  • Both approaches might publish localization information to tf. This could lead to various issues.

hi! i tried to run only the hokuyo node without launching the hector_slam package and the same thing happened(ccny stopped working), do you think there is some kind of conflict between these two devices?
