How can simulation multi-layer(vertical) using gpu_ray sensor?

I would like to simulate the Velodyne Laser.

Velodyne sensor vertically and horizontally in a number of Ray information has to be obtained. So, I try to implement as Ray Sensor Plugin, but is very slow.

So, I replace it with a Gpu Ray sensor parameter setting the vertical ranges does not operate. It operates only when set to 1, the Vertical ranges. Is this a bug? All Gpu Ray sensor test code Vertical ranges equals 1.

The following questions look conclusions should be implemented by rotating the Horizontal Laser sensor. http://answers.gazebosim.org/question...

It does not occur under Issue seems. https://bitbucket.org/osrf/gazebo/iss...

Are there any ideas?

I have the same problem. Has the gpu_ray sensor code been checked for 2D arrays of rays?

This was an old issue with vertical rays and the gpu_ray plugin: https://bitbucket.org/osrf/gazebo/iss...

There is a fix now for the gpu_ray plugin by Jacob Seibert which has been merged to Gazebo 7.14 (and newer Versions): https://bitbucket.org/osrf/gazebo/pul...

If you are working with ROS there is also an ROS velodyne_simulator package using the gpu_ray: http://wiki.ros.org/velodyne_simulator

There has been a fix to the ROS velodyne_simulator package aswell because of the vertical gpu_ray issue: https://bitbucket.org/DataspeedInc/ve...

I can ensure you the problem persists to this day. The problem was not solved and is still an issue in last version of Gazebo.

In fact I am using Gazebo 7.16 where is supposed to be fixed and the problems is still there.
