turtlebot_simulator on hydro barely usable due to robot slipping

asked 2014-08-28 11:32:45 -0500

I just tried out the turtlebot_simulator for hydro (everything installed from .debs) using a roomba base and the robot is moving pretty erratic. If a turn is commanded, the robot will keep rotating after 0 turn rate is commanded. It looks like this is a problem with friction parameters and I´m pretty sure this worked better last time I tried (more than a year ago). Any suggestions on how to improve the situation are appreciated.

Looked into this and it appears the friction parameters were way off. After changing them to be the same as on the Kobuki, things are working fine. See also turtlebot_create pull request 20.
