[ROS] Using Gazebo Laser Scan Plug-in

This video explains how to integrate Laser Scan plug-in with a ROS robot simulated by Gazebo. Visualization of laser scan in Gazebo & laser topic data in Rviz is also explained.

The code discussed is a simple stand-alone example. It was tested with ROS Kinetic & Gazebo 7 running on Ubuntu 16.04.


First, clone or pull the example code from my git repository. And create ROS package files on top of source files.

Build ROS package and add it to ROS search path.

Launch the example.
