Hi, I am new to ROS, actually I had been tried to understand ROS for 2 months, but I am still confused about that. I could build the map using hector mapping and know how to get the distance data of obstacles around the rplidar, but now I need to know the exact position (x, y, z and angle) of the obstacles, anyone knows how to get those data? I need to implement the obstacle detectin on the car, and after that I will make the obstacle avoidance.

I am using rplidar A2 with raspberry pi 3 and ROS kinetic.

Thank you
