Hi All,

I like to integrate ultrasonic sensors into costmap bu getting following error when I run the move_base.

Thread 11 "move_base" received signal  SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

reading from arduino:

#include <sensor_msgs/Range.h>

ros::NodeHandle  nh;

sensor_msgs::Range range_msg;
sensor_msgs::Range range_msg1;
ros::Publisher pub_range( "/ultrasound", &range_msg);
ros::Publisher pub_range1("/ultrasound1", &range_msg1);


char frameid[] = "/ultrasound";
char frameid1[] = "/ultrasound1";

float getRange_Ultrasound(int pin_num){
  int val = 0;
  val=analogRead(pin_num);

  float range =  val;
  return range/81;   // (0.0124023437 /4) ; //cvt to meters
}

void setup()
{
  nh.initNode();
  nh.advertise(pub_range);
  nh.advertise(pub_range1);


  range_msg.radiation_type = sensor_msgs::Range::ULTRASOUND;
  range_msg.header.frame_id =  frameid;
  range_msg.field_of_view = 0.1;  // fake
  range_msg.min_range = 0.0;
  range_msg.max_range = 6.47;

  range_msg1.radiation_type = sensor_msgs::Range::ULTRASOUND;
  range_msg1.header.frame_id =  frameid1;
  range_msg1.field_of_view = 0.1;  // fake
  range_msg1.min_range = 0.0;
  range_msg1.max_range = 6.47;

  pinMode(8,OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(8, LOW);
}


long range_time;

void loop()
{

  //publish the adc value every 50 milliseconds
  //since it takes that long for the sensor to stablize
  if ( millis() >= range_time ){
    int r =0;

    range_msg.range = getRange_Ultrasound(0);
    range_msg.header.stamp = nh.now();
    pub_range.publish(&range_msg);

    range_msg1.range = getRange_Ultrasound(1);
    range_msg1.header.stamp = nh.now();
    pub_range1.publish(&range_msg1);

    range_time =  millis() + 50;
  }

  nh.spinOnce();
}

I could not found the reason for the problem. Is there anyone can suggest a solution to that problem?

Thanks

Does it segfault without the range layer enabled?

Hi David,

No. It only gives error when range layer is enabled.

Can you record a bag with your tf and range data and post it?

Here it is.

Apologies for the delay in responding, but I finally got around to testing your bag and could not replicate the error. Are you still having trouble?

Hi David,

I could not exactly found a solution for my PC but it is working fine on my SBC. It is only not working with my current PC.

What are the specs on your PC in terms of distro/buildtool?
