Dear friends,

I'm experimenting with a turtlebot gazebo simulation. I have written a listener in python and I get the scans from the laser. I'm trying to find a way to change parameters of the scan like the min_angle and the angle_imcrement but I can't find the correct place. Can you help me, please

Its in the urdf. Try to find a file with ".gazebo" termination.

What is the package your working with?

Edit: Yeah you are right sorry. I checked /opt/ros/indigo/share/turtlebot_description/urdf and the file turtlebot_gazebo.urdf.xacro is a kinetic config.

Sorry friend.

I was working with turtlebot examples. OK, I'll check the urdf, although I though that it says that this is a fake laser since it has a kinect and uses the point clound. Thanks!
