I m using ros kinetic and installed some ros packages, so i can launch a robot into a virtual environment in gazebo. The robot uses many sensors like cameras and lasers. And i really would like to know which type of camera is used in the simulation. Is it possible to see somehow which simulated sensor is used lets say as the camera and which model it is?

This is a Gazebo question, which should be asked in that forum, but to give you a quick answer:

The standard sensor plugins aren't any particular models; they just model a generic sensor of that type. It's up to you to define the parameters that reflect a certain manufacturer's specifications. There are, however, some custom plugins that are intended to accurately represent particular sensors. The plugin a robot model uses is defined in (or referenced by) its URDF file, so look there to see the specific plugin library and parameters.

Also, if you would like to know specifics about your simulation, you should post the scripts you use and information about the files you launch. The more information the better!
