GAVLab novatel ROS package - process dies after 20 - 30 seconds [closed]

asked 2015-10-29 09:36:36 -0500

Using: OS - Ubuntu 14.04 and ROS Jade. Running: roslaunch novatel novatel.launch. The process runs for about 20 to 30 seconds and then kills itself, giving out the following error:

REQUIRED process [novatel_node-2] has died! process has died [pid 3522, exit code -11, cmd /home/ku_casl/catkin_ws/devel/lib/novatel/novatel_node __name:=novatel_node..............

I am using a FTDI cable - serial 3.3 V LVTTL to USB converter. The USB port acts as a serial connection. I am using the following configuration in the novatel.launch file:

<launch> <node pkg="novatel" type="novatel_node" name="novatel_node" output="screen" required="true">

    <param name="port" value="/dev/ttyUSB0" />
    <param name="baudrate" value="115200" />
    <param name="odom_topic" value="/gps_odom" />
    <param name="configure_port" value="COM1,115200,RTCM,NONE" />
    <param name="log_commands" value="BESTPOSA ONTIME 1.0; BESTVELB ONTIME 1.0" />
    <param name="gps_default_logs_period" value="1.0" />
    <param name="span_default_logs_period" value="0.0" />



Could anyone please help me on this issue?
