I am working on P3DX. i want to find wheel encoder values from p2os_driver library. In the p2os library, i m directly getting x, y and theta from buffer. Pls. Suggest.

My goal is to find dead-reckoning error in wheel odometry. I found the systematic and non-systematic error. I just need raw wheel encoder values to recalculate the pose as per the errors found as above. Or i need the source code for finding pose in ROSARIA or P2OS

Wheel encoder values are not published by P2OS, or by ROSARIA. The encoders are used to calculate odometry, however. I invite you to dig through the source code, specifically

Edit: Sorry! I linked the wrong file. It has now been updated above. Look at the very bottom of this one, and you will see some relevant information.

what does kinecalc do? why is it showing links in the code? is it for mobile robot only? Pls help

kinecalc is what calculates the odometry transformation in relevant coordinate frames.
