Hello I am new to ROS. I want to convert lat & long to ECEF coordinates and further convert them to NED coordinates. For doing so, I am using geodetic_utils. It has two executable files

set_gps_reference_node gps_to_pose_conversion_node

I am using hector_gazebo_plugins for getting the gps data using


But I am unable to do so and getting error

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named gazebo_ros_gps below /home/pallav/catkin_ws1/src/hector_gazebo_plugins

I have tried everything. Please help!

Actually to run geodetic_utils, I need gps coordinates. For that I need to use hector_gazebo_plugins and use the file gazebo_ros_gps which I am unable to do. It has a topic which publishes fix (sensor_msgs/NavSatFix) which I need.
