Im wondering if anyone would know how i could get sparkfuns Lidar Lite v3 module working with ros. I have it communicating with a raspberry pi, but im unsure how to get it working with ros. Ive been seeing RPlidar around and was wondering if i could somehow use the existing support for RPlidar, but with the Lidar Lite instead of an actual RPlidar module. Heres a link to the lidar module i currently have

I used the sensor with gmapping and roboter pepper, I rotated the sensor with a servo motor to get a laser scan area and wrote my own topic for the laser scan. What do you want to do with the sensor?

Please take a look at this link for sample code in order to get some simple measurement from Lidar Lite V3 and Arduino.
