Hi, we have recently acquired one of these Hokuyo UXM-30LN-PW sensors. On the datasheet it is listed as being compatible with SCIP 2.0 (file online called: UXM-30LN-P-Technical-Specifications.pdf)

however, on running with the standard Hokuyo Node in ROS Groovy, the following error occurs:

[ERROR] [1376982769.505473236]: Exception thrown while opening Hokuyo.
Hokuyo error code returned. Cmd: RS --  Error: Hokuyo error code returned. Cmd: RS --  Error: Hokuyo error code returned. Cmd: RS --  Error: Hokuyo error cod (in hokuyo::laser::sendCmd) You may find further details at

I guessed that this was the Reset condition of the sensor, so tried the suggested steps at the bottom of the Hokuyo node troubleshooting page, by running:

sudo ./upgrade /dev/ttyACM0 reset.cmd

however this also did not help (the same error message occurs). I have looked in other places but I cant see any other mention of someone using this laser in ROS. Can anyone help?!

What do you get, when you connect with a terminal (like gtkterm) and issue the V-command - type 'V' (or 'VV', can't remember)?

I don't know about this specific sensor, but the protocol seems to be correct at least.

Same problem... has anyone found a way to get rid of this error?
