I want to visualize my body fixed coordinate system. How can I do this or what do I need to add into my .sdf file to visualize such a coordinate system?

In the gazebo client on the top menu click "View -> Link Frames". Since link frames may be inside geometry, it helps to do "View -> Transparent" as well. The link frames show as 3 perpendicular axes: blue is +Z, red is +X, yellow is +Y.

Here's a PR2 with transparency and link frames.

Is there a possibility to include this already in the model.sdf file. For the transparency I could just add <transparency>1</transparency>

Never done it myself, but I think you could set the alpha term of `<ambient>` to 0.25 I believe the order is red, green, blue, alpha, so `<ambient>1.0 1.0 1.0 0.25</ambient>" would be a translucent white.
