I want to ask you a question about Gazebo Hokuyo Censor's ranges... I wrote down the algorithm but the ranges must be different, but I do not know what to do... I only know it is not 360...

What should I do?

You are assuming that you have 1 ray per angle. But it depends on how you have defined your plugin in the URDF. For example in the following hokuyo plugin you will have 720 samples <samples>720</samples> between -90º <min_angle>-1.570796</min_angle> and 90º <max_angle>1.570796</max_angle>.

<gazebo reference="base_laser_link">
    <sensor type="gpu_ray" name="head_hokuyo_sensor">
        <pose>0 0 0 0 0 0</pose>
      <plugin name="gazebo_ros_head_hokuyo_controller" filename="">
