BUMPSTALL is a feature of the robot controller firmware that temporarily stops the robot motors (overriding any requested motion) immediately at that level when a bumper switch is triggered. (This event will be passed to ARIA as both a bumper hit and robot stall state.) You can use the robot's firmware configuration tool (e.g. ARCOScf) to disable that if you want, or send a low-level controller command 44 0 to temporarily disable it (there is no ROS interface to do that yet however, you would need to modify the code. but you can experiment with it in "direct command mode" of the ARIA demo tool)

Are you sure this is causing the problem you are seeing (I saw your original text for the question about movement)?

You can also contact for more troubleshooting help, include robot serial number and description of behavior with ROSARIA and with the ARIA demo program (/usr/local/Aria/examples/demo).
