From this question:
Hi, we bought the multisense for our robot and we have added in our urdf. When we try to load the robot in gazebo we have problem with the spindle link that is not found. Looking inside the code we find out that the atlas name is hardcoded: line 93 in MultiSenseSLPlugin.cpp. Basically even simulating only the multisense is possible only if the robot name is atlas is it? If yes is possible to make that the robot name is taken from the simulation instead of hardcoded?
