Unable to render model in RViz [closed]

I'm attempting to follow this tutorial for controlling a robot in a Gazebo simulation. I can view my model in Rviz by itself just fine. I can view my model in Gazebo by itself just fine. But when I run the tutorial's command:

roslaunch mybot_gazebo mybot_gazebo.launch

to load both Rviz and Gazebo simultaneously along with a controller and state publisher, Gazebo renders the model, but doesn't seem to simulate physics even though the simulation is running and consuming 100% CPU, and RViz renders nothing at all in the 3d panel even though the left-hand panel shows no errors:

At the terminal, I see the warning:

Warning: Controller Spawner couldn't find the expected controller_manager ROS interface.

What's causing this?
