  • Autoware version : 1.13.0
  • ROS Version Melodic
  • Autoware installed from Docker
  • Docker version 19.03.5, build 633a0ea838

Hello everyone, I am trying to use the ray_ground_filter of autoware and it used to work just fine but recently it stopped working and it displays this error :

[ERROR] [1576830223.077886525]: Failed transform from base_link to velodyne

I guess it means that the TF between base_link and velodyne is missing bt it seems very surprising.

And If I choose velodyne as the base_frame parameter of the ray_ground_filter it's simply not working.

Do you have an idea of whats wrong ?

Thanks a lot

Thank you for sharing rosbag!

When I checked rosbag, /points_raw/header/stamp was delayed about 35 seconds from /clock/clock. I think TF is failing because of that.

Please set timestamp correctly.
