Hi ! I developped a very simple model in order to simulate the Pepperl Fuchs R2000 laser sensor. I followed the example of the tutoriales provided by Gazebo int he following link:

Now I want to add functiononalities to my model and do things such as retreiving points cloud and visualize it in RViz.

My question is : Do I have to develop the plugin from scratch , as it is showed in this examples ?

OR , can I use an already developped plugin ? such as showed here:

Gazebo plugins

If the answer of the second question is Yes, then how can I integrate this plugin to my model ?

Thanks a lot in advance !

Some of the plugins are already there in the gazebo(Kinect, camera, lidar). if your requirement matches with them you can directly use them. Please visit this link

For setting up the Kinect sensor plugin visit this
