Problem: Stupidity.

Solution: RTFM.

Details By pressing q/w/e you are changing default speeds. To actually make it move at those speeds, you need to press the keys in the 'Moving around' matrix that you included in the picture of what you see in the teleop terminal. E.g., 'u, i, and o'.

So, in the printout on the screen when it said that w/x increased the speed, I took that to mean press w/x to make it move. I didn't look at the large matrix of movement instructions about it, highlighted:

Moving around:
   u    i    o
   j    k    l
   m    ,    .

When I started to press u, i, o, and the other keys in this large map, the turtle began to move around in the map. Basically the instructions are a map:

u : rotate ccw and move forward (forward left)
i : move forward
o : rotate cw and move forward (forward right)
j : rotate ccw
k : stop
l : rotate cw
m : rotate cw and move back (backward left)
, : move back
. : rotate ccw and move back (backward right)

When I started to press u, i, o, and the other keys in this large map, these keys, the turtle began to move around in the map. Basically the instructions are a topographic map:

u : rotate ccw and move forward (forward left)
i : move forward
o : rotate cw and move forward (forward right)
j : rotate ccw
k : stop
l : rotate cw
m : rotate cw and move back (backward left)
, : move back
. : rotate ccw and move back (backward right)

So...oops.
