For documentation, please see sick_tim at the ROS wiki.

Setting up udev rules

Note: The following steps are only required when installing the package from source. When installing a binary debian package of sick_tim >= 0.0.14, the udev rules are set up automatically. Also, this is only required if connecting to the scanner via USB.

To give all members of the plugdev group write access to the Sick TiM devices, run the following commands from the root of the sick_tim repository:

sudo cp debian/udev /etc/udev/rules.d/81-sick-tim3xx.rules
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules

Make sure that your current user is a member of the plugdev group by running groups. If not, add the user to the group and login again.

Now unplug your USB cable and plug it in again. This will allow you to communicate with the laser scanner without running the node as root and fix the following error:

LIBUSB - Cannot open device (permission denied?); please read sick_tim/README.md
