Using rplidar A2 with gmapping
1.Start the gmapping node
Ensure that the lidar is properly installed, and launch the gmapping launch file after ssh login the host.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org.XXX.XXX roslaunch gmapping slam_gmapping_xiaoqiang_rplidar_a2.launch
Open rviz in the local virtual machine, select the
