I am new to mavros. I am able to send one rangefinder data to Ardupilot(Pixhawk FCU). Now I want to send multiple rangefinder's data through mavros. I sent single range finder data using changing arguments in apm.config file and publishing range finder data on /mavros/distance_sensor/rangefinder_pub rostopic. It worked for me. Now I want to send it for multiple rangefinders. How can I?

Hi Harish, I have a terabee lidar connected to pixhawk and I can see the output fine on mission planner. How do I get it to output in /mavros/distance_sensor/rangefinder_pub? DO i have to change something in the apm.config.yaml file before I can see the output? Because at the moment when I type in rostopic echo /mavros/distance_sensor/rangefinder_pub nothing happens....hope you can help
