Multisense SL mass does not compute

Issue #69 new
Former user created an issue

I've just noticed from the official site that the Multisense SL description has a strange mass.

From the datasheet (and what I could measure myself) the Multisense is 2.6 kg

However, from the multisense_description I see the following links:

  • head 1.4199 kg
  • hokuyo_link 0.057664 kg
  • six fake links for a total of 0.6 kg

Grand total : 2.077564 kg

The fake link should be massless, they are there just because URDF doesn't explicitly model frames of reference, and even with these 100 g links, more than half kg is missing.

Can you help understand?
