I'm creating a differential robot and for the wheels I'm using revolute joints. I don't understand the <limit> property I have to add. More specifically the lower and upper fields, the effort and velocity are somewhat understandable. Should I just go yolo and add this to my robot?

<limit effort="30" velocity="1.0" lower="-100" upper="100"/>

revolute joints are rotating joints with limits. You'll want to use a continuous joint, which is a rotating joint without limits (i.e. allowing continuous rotation). See also URDF joint wiki
