Hi all,

I am following the tutorial in this link: http://gazebosim.org/wiki/Tutorials/1.3/control_robot/mobile_base_laser. The robot and the sensor are working properly as mentioned in the Prerequisites. I have copied the code exactly mentioned in the tutorial.However When I spawned the robot into the world it does not stop when it reaches 2 meters in front of obstacle and keeps moving on until it hits the obstacle. I cant figure out what's going wrong over here. I am using gazebo 1.8.6 for this. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

What gazebo version are you using? is there an error/warning message printed in the terminal? I just went through the tutorial and the robot does stop
