Hi there,

I am trying to use two Ibeo Scala sensors at the same time. With the help of the following packages I am able to run one sensor and visualize it in rviz. https://github.com/astuff/ibeo_core https://github.com/astuff/ibeo_scala

Now I would like to setup a second Scala sensor and visualize them both in rviz. I wrote a second launch file, where I changed the IP address and the frame_id. The problem: When I start the second launchfile in a new terminal, the process in the first terminal (first sensor) gets aborted.

Log:

^[[33m[ WARN] [1546933754.809607419]: Shutdown request received.^[[0m
^[[33m[ WARN] [1546933754.809667337]: Reason given for shutdown: [new node regiregistered with same name]^[[0m

How can I change the second nodes name to work along the first one ?

I tried while starting the node to change the name parameter:

roslaunch .... __name:=testnode

and I tried to add a 'remap' in the Launch file

<remap from="ibeo_scala" to="testnode"/>

None of the above works, I always end up with the same error

Thank you. It works. I can run now two sensors simultaneously, but they are both on the same topic: "as_tx/point_cloud".
