I'm trying to open a urdf file in gazebo, using:

rosrun gazebo_ros spawn_model -file urdf/ur5_.urdf -urdf -x 0 -y 0 -z 1 -model ur5

the answer i get is:

Service call failed: service [/gazebo/spawn_urdf_model] responded with an error: b''

I have no idea what that error means, and i havent found anyone with the same error in the questions asked previously. Does anyone know what it could mean?

I'm working with ros noetic on ubuntu 20.04

Could you check your URDF model with this verification tool? Or you could try gz sdf -p ur5_.urdf > ur5_.sdf and then check SDF with gz sdf -k ur5_.sdf. Please show us both results too.

i think, you should use launch file, and your robot spawn at Gazebo with world.
