I want to scan a map using the sensor and display it on rviz. But I don't know how to rotate the sensor.

Is this on a physical robot (which one?), or in simulation?

In gazebo. I want to keep on oscillating (up and down) the Hokuyo sensor (if possible through ROS) and generate the map which will not be planar but more like showing obstacles of the entire world infront of the quadrotor.
