Invalid Conversion from void(*) to ros::Subscriber function

Hi Friends,

I am new to ROS and Arduino programming. I am using linux ros system with intel nuc connected to a arduino mega2560 board which then connect to the DSP controller to control the left and right wheels of a robot to move around.

I am trying to program a robot motor to run by sending command through the ros system. It then will translate the command to the arduino mega2560 board and then send signal to the controller.

The problem that i am facing lies with these 2 lines

ros::Subscriber std_msgs::Float32 lwheel_vtarget("lwheel_vtarget", lmotorCb);

ros::Subscriber std_msgs::Float32 rwheel_vtarget("rwheel_vtarget", rmotorCb);

and the error states that

invalid conversion from 'void (*)()' to 'ros::Subscriber<std_msgs::float32>::CallbackT {aka void ()(const std_msgs::Float32&)}' [-fpermissive] ros::Subscriber<std_msgs::float32> lwheel_vtarget("lwheel_vtarget", lmotorCb);

So i dont understand what the error is stating about and require some explanation from your expertise.

Please do state which info you guys need and i will provide it accordingly.
