Dear all,

I am trying to control Pionner in a simulated environment using p2os and gazebo. For that, I executed:

$ roscore
$ roslaunch p2os_urdf pioneer3dx.gazebo.launch

The Pioneer appeared in the simulated environment.

What I must do now for controlling it?

I already tried:

$ rostopic pub /cmd_vel geometry_msgs/Twist '[-0.5, 0, 0]' '[0, 0, 0]' -r 100

but it didn't work.

Kind regards,

Hey! So, I haven't quite gotten the Pioneer-3dx working (Gazebo deprecated the plugin it needed, so I'm trying to get that fixed for the next p2os release). Currently, you can only use the Pioneer-3AT in simulation. I was planning on getting this resolved in the near future, don't worry. :)

 $ roslaunch p2os_urdf pioneer3at.gazebo.launch

The issue is now on the p2os bucktracker.
