Hi there,

I need to increase the range of the kinect for my turtlebot in simulation. I don't know what to modify: in gazebo.urdf.xacro - the package turtlebot/description (please see below) - the range is set to 10.0m so I guess there is a thresholding somewhere else.

Does anybody know where I should look for?

Thanks,

Maurizio
