Is there any way to get the parameters of the sensor itself, such as vendor,resolution,power,etc.

Thank you.

In general, unless the driver writer has chosen to expose this information, vendor and power won't be available. If it is available, it tends to be in a diagnostics message. For instance, in the Hokuyo driver urg_node here is where the information is populated: populateDiagnosticsStatus

Depending on the type sensor, resolution is available either in the sensor_msgs/CameraInfo or sensor_msgs/LaserScan
