I want to use gazebo skid steering drive plugin for my 4 wheelled robot and then use navigation stack like in ROS Tutorials.

The question is whould it work or I need something else for working?(maybe another controller) Now I've created urdf of my robot with skid steering drive controller, I see that it publish to odom and tf, and it seems ground thuth, but I'm not shure about that because didn't find a lot of information.

  • also I want to see a code of skid steering plugin, but I found only old version =(

I am having similar problems. I am not really sure how this plug-in works and it only publish joint_states if you specify a namespace. I am using the ros_control package to for control.
