Hello all,

I have a .bag file, which was created using Velodyne 64 Lidar Sensor. In Autoware, using NDT mapping and PCD output, I got .pcd file. First, I run bag file and paused it immediately. In "Map", I am choosing my pcd file and in TF I am choosing tf.launch file. I am opening rviz and everything is working. After playing again bag file from pause format, I can see odom is showing the pre-defined path of Lidar Sensor.

However, I can't spawn a car here, using Vehicle model. I am trying to run in "Setup menu of Runtime Manager of Autoware" TF and Vehicle Model. But I can't see in Rviz the car.

How I can get a vehicle here? Thanks for your answers

@AM97 I am not getting any errors. Could you please tell me how to spawn a vehicle in the RVIZ in Autoware?

Here, in this link, you can see the car in the street. I have a similar map, with sensor surroundings however I am not able to launch a car:

Imagine that I have the same picture in my RVIZ, but without a car.
