I see on sdformat.org sensor specs that there is two kind of LiDAR like sensor simulation that is gpu_ray and ray. It seem that both produce same information but is there any practical different between them?

At least I know that only `ray` sensor work on my Gazebo and able produce reading.

GPU ray sensors run in the rendering, so they are usually more efficient and detect visual shapes.

Ray sensors run in the physics, so they're less efficient and detect collision shapes.
