part of arduino code:

void loop(){
  String ang = String(angle);//angle is global value 
  String dis = String(myLidarLite.distance()); //myLidarLite.distance() is API function to get distance data
  String total = ang+'a'+ dis;

  int len = total.length();
  char toROS[len-1];
  total.toCharArray(toROS, len); = toROS;  //std_msgs::String scan;
  LIDAR.publish (&scan); //ros::Publisher LIDAR("Lidar_raw", &scan);
  nh.spinOnce();   //ros::NodeHandle nh;

I observed the output of this rostopic:

... data: 76b66
--- data: 103b48
--- data: 134b50
--- data: 163b61
--- data: 193b34
--- data: 227b9
--- data: 248b8
--- data: 271b69
--- data: 296b
--- data: 325b54

The dis is missing in some data, I try to output this format string in Serial Monitor and it's right. It just random missed.. Any suggestions will be appreciate.
