I am working on a differential drive robot with two motor wheels with encoders and caster wheels. The robot also has a intel realsense depth camera.

When I launch RVIZ : Thee Global option > Fixed frame is set to Base_link and shows all the transforms for the differential driver nodes. But an error appears for the Depth camera nodes with message saying :

No transform from Camera_depth_frame to baselink

No transform from Camera_depth_optical_frame to baselink

No transform from Camera_link to baselink

No transform from Camera_rgb_frame to baselink

If I change the Global option > fixed frame to Camera_link I can see all the transforms for the depth camera but now the differential drive transforms are now not available

Hope you can help.

Hi, the issue is that you did not set a tf transform between the camera frame and the Base link.

Try adding a transform between those frame!
