2015-07-23 21:14:11 -0500 asked a question I cannot launch p2os_driver

I have cloned p2os from this site then I have executed catkin_make. When I rosrun p2os_driver p2os_driver the node looks working but after a while it looks crashing and the robot starts ringing. This is what I obtain when I run the node :

~/catkin_ws$ rosrun p2os_driver p2os_driver

After that, I try to roslaunch p2os_launch p2os_driver.launch I get an error. This is what is happening:

Do you have an idea what could cause this issue? Thanks in advance for your help.

2015-07-09 00:47:40 -0500 commented answer Why rosdep install doesn't work?

I have already source after catkin_make, in that case it does not find the package but here, it finds it but nothing about even that it cannot find the master. For p2os I have already fix it, but I am wondering if I need p2os_dashboard package because it does not exist.

2015-07-08 23:59:20 -0500 commented answer Why rosdep install doesn't work?

I also tried sudo apt-get install ros-jade-p2os-*, it seems working but I get errors. I need to fix that but I would prefer working with RosAria since I use to.

2015-07-08 23:56:59 -0500 commented answer Why rosdep install doesn't work?

Thank you for the reply, I've already try git clone . then catkin_make but when I do rosrun rosaria RosAria nothing at all happens. I wonder it was because of rosdep.

Thank you for the reply, I've already try git clone than catkin_make but when I do rosrun nothing at all happens. I just tried sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-p2os-* , it seams working but I get an error. But the thing I do not understand at all is, why nothing is happening when I rosrun RosAria

2015-07-08 22:16:13 -0500 asked a question Why rosdep install doesn't work?

Hello, I am trying to install the rosaria package trough rosdep but when I run the command rosdep install rosaria along this tutorial this is what I obtain :

robotics@robotics-MacBookAir:~/catkin_ws/src$ rosdep install rosaria
Executing script below with cwd=/tmp
if test "x`dpkg-query -W -f='${Package} ${Status} ${Version}\n' libaria-sourcedep`" != 'xlibaria-sourcedep install ok installed 2.8.0-1'; then
 echo "libaria-sourcedep not installed"
  exit 1
  exit 0


#All required rosdeps installed successfully

And then if I try to run: rosrun rosaria RosAria, nothing happen and it crashes.


This is what I obtain when I run :

roscd && cd ../src
cd ..

git clone
robotics@robotics-MacBookAir:~/catkin_ws/src$ roscd && cd ../src

2015-07-08 03:50:52 -0500 answered a question glibc detected, memory issue

Yes I did but I don't remember exactly which one is the good solution. First be sure you installed this one : Then you have to change the settings of the laser, for that you use the software given by SICK and set to 0.5┬░the angle between each beam and the frequency to 25Hz. And if it is still not working wait for the laser to be "initialized" by waiting that the red light in front stop to flash.

I am using the lms1xx driver to read data from a LMS100 laser. I am using ROS hydro. Could someone help me to solve this issue.

2015-04-02 22:40:18 -0500 asked a question Cannot build a map from LMS100

Hello, I have to implement a LMS100 on ROS for my lab. I succeed to install a driver to get the scan and I can plot it on RVIZ. (the package I am using is not working very well, I can only scan the half right but the latest version I have found only scan once and then stop :LMS1xx). But this is not my big issue, the first package creates a topic /scan (which works) and I am using it to call gmapping: rosrun gmapping slam_gmapping scan:=/scan But then it generates several topics which are "empty". And the terminal write down this:

[ WARN] [1428030742.039476635]: MessageFilter [target=odom ]: Dropped 100.00% of messages so far. Please turn the [ros.gmapping.message_notifier] rosconsole logger to DEBUG for more information.

I have checked with rqt_graph to see if the connection between the laser and slam_gmapping was created and it seems yes. Could you help me to find out why slam_gmapping is not publishing?

Hello everyone, I got the same issue than jc17 and I didn't find a way to fix it. Does one of you find a way to pass through it? Thanks!
