When launching pioneer3dx.gazebo.launch from the p2os_urdf ROS package, gazebo crashes with the following error message:

[spawn_pioneer-5] process has finished cleanly log file: /home/damjan/.ros/log/149f697e-1e4e-11e7-833b-3c970e29894f/spawn_pioneer-5*.log Error [] Unable to set value [-nan -nan -nan] for key[size] gzclient: /build/ogre-1.9-mqY1wq/ogre-1.9-1.9.0+dfsg1/OgreMain/src/OgreNode.cpp:630: virtual void Ogre::Node::setScale(const Ogre::Vector3&): Assertion `!inScale.isNaN() && "Invalid vector supplied as parameter"' failed. Aborted (core dumped) [gazebo_gui-4] process has died [pid 26353, exit code 134, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzclient __name:=gazebo_gui __log:=/home/damjan/.ros/log/149f697e-1e4e-11e7-833b-3c970e29894f/gazebo_gui-4.log]

I'm running ROS Kinetic with Gazebo 7 (both installed with apt) on Xenial.

Seems to be a different issue from this one.

I had the same issue. Sensor collistions are broken in the model. In amr_robots_description/urdf open all xacro files and replace size="0 0 0" with something like size="0.01 0.01 0.01". Then It'll work

please note there are two pull request into amr to fix this bug, as well as some others.

Thanks! For now, I have ported your changes to [my p2os fork]( Right now amr-ros-config seems a bit unwieldy due to all the stuff that's in there.
