Simulation stops on spawn of 2D LIDAR ROS Melodic

asked 2019-09-19 05:55:48 -0600

Hello,

I am trying to create an outdoor simulation using Gazebo heightmap and my urdf robot model. As soon as i spawn my model into my world (small.world) the Gazebo Sim Time stops.

This can be recreated by starting the gazebo world and then spawning the 2D LIDAR in it

roslaunch gazebo_ros empty_world.launch empty_world.launch world_name:="<path_to_world>/small.world"

roslaunch my_pkg sick.launch

sick.launch is a launchfile to spawn a LIDAR from the sick_scan repo.

When I do the same but with a flat style world everything works as expected.

Anybody got an Idea why this happens?

Thank you for your help

Gazebo Version 9.11.0 (I upgraded from 9.0 since I hoped this would eliminate my problems) Ubuntu 18.04 ROS Melodic
