Hello all,

I'm trying to run a simulation of a multi robot system with Gazaebo and visualize it on RVIZ. Since I'm using Noetic, I was forced to declare every transform with static_transform_publisher but when I do so, I keep getting the same error over and over again on RVIZ: No transform from [] to [robot_1/odom]. This happens in every single element of the robot and I don't understand why.

My code is spread over 3 files:

  • multi_robot_simulation.launch;
  • robots.launch;
  • one_robot.launch.

And they are executed in this exact order. Below I included the code for each launch file:


    <arg name="model" default="$(env TURTLEBOT3_MODEL)" doc="model type [burger, waffle, waffle_pi]"/>
    <!-- Start Robot world -->
    <include file="$(find gazebo_ros)/launch/empty_world.launch">
      <arg name="world_name" value="$(find turtlebot3_gazebo)/worlds/"/>
      <arg name="use_sim_time" value="true"/>
      <arg name="gui" value="true"/>
      <arg name="debug" value="false"/>
    <!-- include our robots -->
    <include file="$(find gspn_framework_package)/ros/launch/static_transform_publisher_test/robots.launch"/>


<group ns="robot_1">
  <include file="$(find gspn_framework_package)/ros/launch/static_transform_publisher_test/one_robot.launch" >
    <arg name="init_pose" value="-x -0.5 -y 0.5 -z 0" />
    <arg name="x" value="-0.5" />
    <arg name="y" value="0.5" />
    <arg name="robot_name"  value="Robot1" />
    <arg name="name_space"  value="robot_1" />
<node name="rviz" pkg="rviz" type="rviz" args="-d $(find gspn_framework_package)/ros/config/myconfig.rviz"/>


  <arg name="robot_name"/>
  <arg name="init_pose"/>
  <arg name="name_space"/>
  <arg name="x"/>
  <arg name="y"/>
  <param name="robot_description" command="$(find xacro)/xacro $(find turtlebot3_description)/urdf/turtlebot3_waffle_pi.urdf.xacro" />

  <node name="spawn_urdf" pkg="gazebo_ros" type="spawn_model" args="$(arg init_pose) -urdf -param robot_description -model $(arg robot_name)"/>
