Hello, I have the following urdf file for my astras cameras (sensor_astra1 and sensor_astra2). The problem is that the /robot_state_publisher does not publish the TF of the cameras, so I cannot use them with RtabMap. I have followed the instructions in order to add new sensors to Turtlebot and I have all the required files. I beleive the problem is with the actual urdf of the cameras but I cannot see the error. The file is:

<!-- RGBD sensor for simulation, same as Kinect -->


Any help is appreaciated! Cheers
