I want to run a "perfect odometry" simulation of turtlebot in Gazebo. I would like to teleop the robot throughout a world and get the ground truth pose and the depth image. The normal /odom node is subject to error from wheel slip.

I've had look at the /gazebo/link_states topic and managed to extract the ground truth pose but there are no timestamps associated with those messages so I have no way of linking them up with the depth images.

Is there a way to get gazebo to publish the ground truth directly to tf?
