Hey, hope you all are doing well.

I am working on a basic project where I have to spawn a robot inside Gazebo using ROS 2 framework.

Specifications:

  • Gazebo - 11.12.0
  • ROS - Foxy

My code snippet:

start_robot_state_publisher_cmd = Node(
    package='robot_state_publisher',
    executable='robot_state_publisher',
    name='robot_state_publisher',
    output='screen',
    parameters=[{'robot_description': Command(['xacro ', urdf_model])}]
)

# Start Gazebo server
start_gazebo_server_cmd = IncludeLaunchDescription(
    PythonLaunchDescriptionSource(os.path.join(pkg_gazebo_ros, 'launch', 'gzserver.launch.py')),
    condition=IfCondition(use_simulator),
    launch_arguments={'world': world}.items())

# Start Gazebo client    
start_gazebo_client_cmd = IncludeLaunchDescription(
    PythonLaunchDescriptionSource(os.path.join(pkg_gazebo_ros, 'launch', 'gzclient.launch.py')),
    condition=IfCondition(PythonExpression([use_simulator, ' and not ', headless])))

robot_description_content = Command(
    [
        PathJoinSubstitution([FindExecutable(name="xacro")]),
        " ",
        PathJoinSubstitution([desc_pkg_share, urdf_file_path])
    ]
)

robot_description = {"robot_description": robot_description_content}

# Launch the robot
spawn_entity_cmd = Node(
    package='gazebo_ros', 
    executable='spawn_entity.py',
    name="urdf_spawner",
    respawn="false",
    output="screen",
    arguments=['-entity', 'rrr_arm', 
                '-topic', 'robot_description',
                    '-x', '0.0',
                    '-y', '0.0',
                    '-z', '0.0',
                    '-R', '0.0',
                    '-P', '0.0',
                    '-Y', '0.0'],
)

I am able to spawn the robot inside the Gazebo but along with that I am getting some error messages like below one:

But sometimes not able to spawn robot into the gazebo and getting below error output. In this case I have to use killall gzserver terminal command before running the ros2 launch command to get things working. Also when I am using Ctrl+X to exit the gazebo(after successful spawning robot), then getting below messages:
