I am calculating linear distance by taking Velocity at X and Y, multiply them by `1/rate(Hz)` and summing them together. Is this calculation right?
Also, I am a bit skeptical about calculating the turn using angular velocity. Any guidance here is appreciated.
I am visualizing the path in RViz. It would be great if you could point me to relevant source code that I could look into.Joy16Thu, 30 Jun 2016 19:53:33 -0500https://answers.ros.org/question/238582/
