Hi all. When I try to use the hector_quadrotor stack to simulate the UAV, I met problems like this when I roslaunch the launch file.

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [odometry_to_tf/odometry_to_tf]: Cannot locate node of type [odometry_to_tf] in package [odometry_to_tf]

I have done the procedures "rosdep install odometry_to_tf" & "rosmake odometry_to_tf".So I doubt whether someting is wrong with the type of node. So could someone can tell me how to get the type of a node? Any advice will be appreciated.

As @sam suggests, this should show you the "type" name:

$ roscd odometry_to_tf/bin
$ ls

This is a duplicate question of this. Install the stack hacktor_localization and the rosmake and your launch will work.
