I created a velodyne lidar with this tutorial: In my tests I also need checkerboards to be present, but lidar laseds just pierce then and return inf range value. Any suggestions how to fix this?

Is your Velodyne a ray sensor or a gpu_ray sensor?

If it's ray, the sensor detects objects by their collisions, so you need to add collision of the same shape as your checkerboard. If it's gpu_ray, the sensor detects objects by their visuals, and collision is not needed.
