hi, I have an sonar sensor connected with arduino uno and i get range data. i want to convert range data to Laser_scan. have you any solution to do that please? this is my code:

    #include <ros/ros.h>
#include <tf/transform_broadcaster.h>
#include <sensor_msgs/LaserScan.h>
#include "sensor_msgs/Range.h"
#include "std_msgs/String.h"

double range;
void rangeCallback(const sensor_msgs::Range::ConstPtr& range_msg)
    range = range_msg->range;
    ROS_INFO("I heard: [%f]", range);

int main(int argc, char** argv){
ros::init(argc, argv, "range_listner");
ros::init(argc, argv, "laser_scan_publisher");
tf::TransformBroadcaster broadcaster;
ros::NodeHandle n;
ros::Subscriber sub = n.subscribe("/ultrasound", 1000, rangeCallback);
ros::Publisher scan_pub = n.advertise<sensor_msgs::LaserScan>("scan",50);
unsigned int num_readings = 20;
double laser_frequency = 40;
double ranges[num_readings];
int count = 10;
ros::Rate r(1.0);

    for(unsigned int i=0; i<num_readings; i++)
        ranges[i] = range;
    ros::Time scan_time = ros::Time::now();
    sensor_msgs::LaserScan scan;
    scan.header.stamp = scan_time;
    scan.header.frame_id = "base_link";
    scan.angle_min = -1.57;
    scan.angle_max = 1.57;  
    scan.angle_increment = 3.14 / num_readings;
    scan.time_increment = (1/laser_frequency)/(num_readings);
    scan.range_min = 0.0;
    scan.range_max = 100.0;
    for(unsigned int i=0; i<num_readings; i++)
        scan.ranges[i] = ranges[i];
                tf::Transform(tf::Quaternion(0, 0, 0, 1), tf::Vector3(0.1, 0.0, 0.2)),
                ros::Time::now(),"base_link", "base_laser"));
