I am implementing navigation stack on my robot and using move_base to move the robot. The move base node is publishing Twist messages on rostopic navigation_velocity_smoother/raw_cmd_vel. Can anyone describe what this topic is for ?

I'm not sure which velocity_smoother you're referring to, but this package has documentation for the topics:

The velocity smoother is designed to smooth out potentially jerky commands to keep a robot from rocking around if the user is too aggressive with the joystick.

Thanks for your response. I will look into this package.
