OS: Ubuntu, ROS version: Melodic, In the tutorial :

I came across an error in rviz -> RobotModel : no transform from axis to odom.

I launched the rviz and selected fixed frame in the global options. I have also added RobotModel and tf display as tutorial suggests. What could be the possible reasons? Any help is appreciated.

Hi @Hardik Rathod,

Did you launch the node provided with the tutorial.

The URDF alone does not have the odom frame, this is becasue the node is publising the odom->axis transform. Hence, launching the node will probably fix your problem.
