Hello, i have a lidar called Litra LTME-02A from China. However, i can not find any package to support this kind. Can you help me to connect this lidar with ROS ? Or are there any packages supporting all kinds of lidar ? This is the link of this product ? Thanks in advance!

Their are no generic packages for such devices. It entirely depends on the type of interface provided with the sensor (ethernet, serial etc) and the configuration parameters/commands for querying and setting up the sensor.

If you already have a way of talking to the sensor (driver) and getting raw packets into your computer then you can write a ros wrapper around the manufacturer/vendor provided driver. i found this driver for ltme_01 module. perhaps you could try using this first
