Hi, I am simulating two husky robots in ros. When I run the simulation, the others parts work well but somehow my Laser scan uses base_laser frame instead of something like tf_prefix/base_laser frame. I know I can get data from base_laser by adding static_transform_publisher between base_laser and tf_prefix/base_laser frame but if I do so, since Im linking with both robots, the tf will switch between two and would not work as intended.

I was trying to solve this problem by adding laser plugin to my urdf file but somehow I get a error message

Error [] Model[Husky_h1] is attempting to load a plugin, but detected an incorrect plugin type. Plugin filename[] name[laser_controller] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Do anyone have experience with this issue? Thanks
