SICK-LMS200 on Ros Electric

Way back when I used player, I had to do a delay to give the laser time to start scanning. Assuming I had to do this again, I found this question; however, the answer appears to not work in electric. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

The reason this answer is not applicable is due to the lack of a

/ros/electric/stacks/sicktoolbox/build/sicktoolbox-1.0/c++/drivers/lms/sicklms-1.0/SickLMS.cc

directory. Any help?

Thanks,

-Hunter A.

Are you sure that is still necessary? According to ticket/4138 for laser_drivers an initial delay should now be supported by the standard package (added in changeset/38987).


EDIT: apparently those changes are only in the Fuerte version of the toolbox (thanks @Chad Rockey). For Electric, you could do a checkout of the package and apply the specific patches yourself, backporting them. Be sure to checkout the appropriate version of the sources.

How do I configure the delay?

Looks like it is just a parameter, so add it to the list of parameters of the node in your launch file?

The parameter for the pioneers and the sick toolbox has only been released for Fuerte.

We cannot use fuerte because the p2os driver doesn't exist for fuerte yet. Due to that limitation, how should we proceed?
