[ros-users] [Discourse.ros.org] [General] Hector_mapping results in tf transformation error

The hector mapping package is not finding the TF even though I have created a static reference TF. I keep getting the following error when I try to launch the training.launch file located in ~/hector_slam/launch. I modified the training.launch file in order to create my TF. The hector_slam package partially works but it does not publish the map_odom transformation so I have no way of knowing the relative location of my rover from the initial location. Can you please help? 

The error is:

[ERROR] [1513111318.589547578, 1512355461.660118665]: Transform failed during publishing of map_odom transform: Lookup would require extrapolation into the future.  Requested time 1512355460.650420421 but the latest data is at time 1512355460.113152033, when looking up transform from frame [base_link] to frame [nav]
