I'm new to ROS and have gone through the basic tutorials. I'm trying to get gmapping working on the husky robot in simulation. I want to simulate gmapping using a kinect (which I will be using on later in real life if the simulation works). Right now I have the kinect showing up in gazebo but I don't have anything coming up in rviz (no topics - that i can see).
From what I have gathered from reading online is that I need to modify the base.urdf.xacro file. Can anyone help me and tell me what exactly I need to do to get simulated kinect data, so that I can progress towards mapping a room?

were you able to setup the kinect on the husky, Im using the jackal which is similat and I run into the same problem. How did you set up the kinect on the gazebo?
