I would like to use the GridMap package in the AutonomousActorPlugin to improve obstacle avoidance. This is the simple code I add to the AutoActorPlugin::Load(physics::ModelPtr _model, sdf::ElementPtr _sdf) method:

  ros::NodeHandle nh("~");
  ros::Publisher publisher = nh.advertise<grid_map_msgs::GridMap>("grid_map", 1, true);
  GridMap obs_map({"obstacles"});
  obs_map.setGeometry(Length(2.0, 2.0), 0.1, Position(init_pose[0], init_pose[1]));

The building is ok, but in run time it gives me this error:

    gzserver: symbol lookup error: /home/alberto/ros/tiago_public_ws/devel/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN8grid_map7GridMapC1ERKSt6vectorINSt7__cxx1112basic_stringIcSt11char_traitsIcESaIcEEESaIS7_EE

Can someone suggest me a solution? Thank you in advance.

seems like the loader is having problems finding a gridmap binary symbol. This usually comes from incompatible changes done to the libraries used by the plugin without recompiling the plugin. Could you please remove build/ install/ spaces in catkin and rebuild the whole thing again to see if that helps?
