VLP16 does not move with Turtlebot [closed]

asked 2017-10-13 03:22:48 -0600

Hi. I am trying to place a Velodyne Lidar Puck 16 on the top of a Turtlebot model in Gazebo. [ROS Kinetic - Gazebo 7.0]. All is good, until i apply a force/torque to the turtlebot: the robot moves, the lidar does not.

Where is the error?

In order to attatch the lidar to the turtlebot i modified the sdf model in this way:

<include> <uri>model://velodyne_VLP16</uri> <pose>0 0 0.45 0 0 0</pose> </include> <joint name="VLP16_joint" type="fixed"> <child>VLP16::base_footprint</child> <parent>create::base</parent> </joint>

The sdf file of the lidar is:

<sdf version="1.6"> <model name="velodyne-VLP16"> <static>false</static> <link name="base_footprint"> <inertial> <pose frame="">0 0 0 0 0 0</pose> <inertia> <ixx>3.23643</ixx> <ixy>0.0156863</ixy> <ixz>0.065702</ixz> <iyy>3.35996</iyy> <iyz>-0.00821275</iyz> <izz>3.32745</izz> </inertia> <mass>2</mass> </inertial>
