In this tutorial "Intermediate: Velodyne"(link below), we should learn how to visualizing the sensor data in Gazebo and RViz. But i c'ant publish any Sensor Data to ROS (maybe this part is missing) i can see only /my_velodyne/vel_cmd msg and no Sensor Data. any help how can i publish a pointCloud msg to ROS and visualize it in rviz? Thanks.
