I have an RPLidar A1 and when I plug it in, it just keeps on rotating even when the rplidar node is not running. And, also I don't know its current frequency of rotation and I want to configure it, as it can vary from 5 Hz to 10 Hz, how to do that? What changes do I have to make in the launch file of rplidar in order to start the motor only when I run the rplidar launch file and stop it when the file is closed?

What have you tried / found yourself and where? Just to avoid members suggesting the same things. The wiki/rplidar page already seems to mention start and stop services, fi.
