When launching my rplidar with this launch file:
I get the following results:
[ERROR] [1661897836.925154936]: Error, operation time out. RESULT_OPERATION_TIMEOUT!
[rplidarNode-2] process has died [pid 1134, exit code 255, cmd /home/ubuntu/catkin_ws/devel/lib/rplidar_ros/rplidarNode __name:=rplidarNode __log:=/home/ubuntu/.ros/log/5e49ff26-28b1-11ed-bc80-6b297ff21963/rplidarNode-2.log].
log file: /home/ubuntu/.ros/log/5e49ff26-28b1-11ed-bc80-6b297ff21963/rplidarNode-2*.log
Consistently fails but I would say perhaps 1 out of 100 tries works. Sometimes there is no timeout but the scan fails to start.
Hobbyists do this sort of stuff but it would appear that there is something going on besides power and cabling. Slamtec offers no help so I’m wondering if anyone has experienced this problem with RPLidar? Thanks guys.
