1)I am doing a project on AMCL of a quadcopter and now I am facing a problem where my laser scan couldn't work (running stage simulator,

[ WARN] [1379926948.092017939, 127.500000000]: No laser scan received (and thus no pose updates have been published) for 127.500000 seconds.  Verify that data is being published on the /scan topic.**

I have another question,

2) What should I do in order to localize my robot on rviz with exact map while I am running it on stage simulator? By creating a static tf? How should I do?

Ps: Using Fuerte ROS

Hi Martin,

I remember that I needed to remap the laser-scan topic (default: "/scan") in order to make it work with AMCL... my launchfile is something like this (most of the parameters are taken 1-by-1 from the AMCL tutorial):

<node name="map_server" pkg="map_server" type="map_server" args="$(find husky_simulation_fh_ac)/map/gasstation.yaml"/>

<node pkg="amcl" type="amcl" name="amcl" output="screen">
    <remap from="scan" to="hokuyo_scan"/>
    <param name="odom_frame_id" value="odom_combined"/>
    <param name="odom_model_type" value="diff"/>
    <param name="laser_model_type" value="likelihood_field"/>
    <param name="use_map_topic" value="false"/>
    <param name="odom_alpha5" value="0.1"/>

Hi psei, the question was asked by FuerteNewbie, I just changed the formatting (parts of the question were invisible before).
