Doubt about ultrasonic and IR sensors

Hi all, I've seen in the SDF format, that there are IR sensors, but when I include one in a model, Gazebo gives me an error (Error [SensorManager.cc:151] Unable to create sensor of type[ir]).

How can I create an IR sensor?

And, the next one: to create an Ultrasonic (range) sensor, I need to create a ray sensor as it's parent?

I'm very noob with Gazebo, and still learning, but the tutorial on the web is with a contact sensor and doesn't works for my purposes.

Thank you.

http://gazebosim.org/wiki/Tutorials/1.3/control_robot/mobile_base_laser has a tutorial that uses a laser sensor. I don't know if the laser can help you, but maybe the tutorial could clarify some ideas.

The upcoming version of gazebo (1.9) will have ultrasonic sensor built in.

You can create an IR sensor using a ray sensor, and just use one ray.
