Hi, I would like to know if turtlebot which is simulated in gazebo requires calibration of Odometry and Gyro.

Thanks, Karthik

Calibration is not required, but note in simulation there's numerical errors associated with physics calculation causing the robot odometry to drift a bit as the robot drives around. The numerical error is associated with the time step size and the inner iteration steps setting if quickstep is used.
