I've been trying to vain to spawn and control a PR2 in Gazebo 1.9. I've tried Hydro and and Groovy but have had the most success with Groovy. I'm following these instructions to spawn a PR2 from xacro: http://gazebosim.org/wiki/Tutorials/1.9/UsingroslaunchFilestoSpawnModels#UsingroslaunchtoSpawnURDFRobots.

Among the many errors I am recieving is this one: Error [CameraPlugin.cc:46] CameraPlugin requires a CameraSensor. Msg It is a depth camera sensor

Anyone have this working or have an idea when a working version will be available?

Thanks in advance

I can confirm this issue. I tried following the same tutorial to simulate the PR2 in Gazebo 1.9 und ROS Hydro. After loading the PR2 URDF from pr2description onto the parameter server, and using spawnurdf to spawn the robot I get several errors. Any news on the issue below?

I'm also using ROS Groovy, a PR2, and Gazebo, and it seems that I need to use 1.9 (as there are bad bugs seg. faulting in the default 1.5 installation). Is there any update on this issue? Is there any hope for us that must use Groovy?
