Hi guys, trying to simulate a kuka iiwa in gazebo11 with Ubuntu 20 and ROS noetic. I get the following output after I roslaunch iiwa_gazebo iiwa.launch output

So it never loads the gazebo_ros plugin. I can't figure out why. These are the contents of the log file:

log file

I have attached the launch file C:\fakepath\iiwa.launch and sdf file C:\fakepath\iiwa7_no_collision.sdf

If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated :) Thank you guys so much!

matching <param name in the launch file with the <robotParam> in the .sdf worked! hehe :)
