Hi,

I bought a Hokuyo URG-04LX-UG01 lidar today, but I can't use it with ROS kinetic.

Untill now hokuyo_node wiki still doesn't have a kinetic release. The newest release is for jade.

So I tried to install hokuyo_node from source. Firstly I cloned hokuyo_node source from github to my local directory ~/catkin_ws/src. Then I did catkin_make. The result is as follow:

CMake Warning at /opt/ros/kinetic/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:76 (find_package):
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "driver_base" with
any of the following names:

driver_baseConfig.cmake
driver_base-config.cmake

Add the installation prefix of "driver_base" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"driver_base_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If
"driver_base" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
has been installed.

See also "/home/shay/catkin_ws/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".
See also "/home/shay/catkin_ws/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log".

It seems that I need the driver_base package. But kinetic doesn't have a driver_base. As driver_base had been deprecated.

Is there anyone uses hokuyo lidar on Kinetic? Any help would be appreciated, Thx. :)


EDIT

Thanks to @130s, I tried urg_node just now. urg_node also hasn't been released to Kinetic, So I tried to intall it from source. I cloned urg_node source from github to my local directory ~/catkin_ws/src. Then I did catkin_make. The result is as follow:

CMake Warning at /opt/ros/kinetic/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:76 (find_package):

I also had to clone and build laser_proc and urg_c packages

cd ~/catkin_ws/src
git clone https://github.com/ros-perception/laser_proc.git
git clone https://github.com/ros-dirvers/urg_c.git
cd ..
catkin_make

@KevinNickels, there is a typo in the repo clone link, should be:

git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/urg_c.git

You will need to install and compile driver_base from sources too

git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/driver_common.git

First compile driver_common and then you should be able to compile hokuyo_node

These days the hokuyo_node wiki page recommends urg_node package. And it's still true that urg_node hasn't been released into Kinetic, for which I requested.

One advantage despite it's the probably more maintained package with more updates, urg_node is BSD while hokuyo_node is LGPL.

Thanks, I tried urg_node and edit and question. It seems that I have to go back to jade temporarily and wait for urg_node and hokuyo_node to release to Kinetic.

  1. cd ~/catkin_ws/src
  2. git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/hokuyo...
  3. cd ~/catkin_ws && catkin_make

#if have error -- Install dependency of all packages in the workspace

  1. rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src -r -y

I am pretty new to ROS and i also use the kinetic version. Did anyone succeed in using Hokuyo on ROS Kinetic ?

Please open a new question instead of asking a question in an answer section (that's not how this forum is designed. Your question wouldn't get much attention by doing this).

They didn't skip Kinetic, but haven't update to the newest distro Kinetic. My question is how can I use it in my Kinetic as I said. Thanks.
