How do I set different speed for Turtlebot wheels using python? I've been using Twist() for making the Turtlebot move forward or rotate on one spot. How do I use angular and linear for setting speed on on wheels separately? For instance, I want Turtlebot to go in a circle with a specific radius.

The robot is not restricted to "one spot"; you can set both translational and rotational velocities in the same message.

With that said, although it's C++, see an answer I posted previously about the relationship between linear and angular velocities (and how to calculate them).

Thank you, I will try doing that!
