Greeting, I am trying to update the odometry yaw estimate using IMU sensor. I followed instructions as provided in robot_localization wiki page. But, odom frame jumps a lot. It appear there are two conflicting sources of odom information. I am using following launch file:

enter code here<!-- Launch file for ekf_localization_node -->


<node pkg="robot_localization" type="ekf_localization_node" name="ekf_localization" clear_params="true">

  <!-- ======== STANDARD PARAMETERS ======== -->

  <!-- The frequency, in Hz, at which the filter will output a position estimate. Note that
       the filter will not begin computation until it receives at least one message from
       one of the inputs. It will then run continuously at the frequency specified here,
       regardless of whether it receives more measurements. Defaults to 30 if unspecified. -->
  <param name="frequency" value="30"/>

  <!-- The period, in seconds, after which we consider a sensor to have timed out. In this event, we
       carry out a predict cycle on the EKF without correcting it. This parameter can be thought of
       as the minimum frequency with which the filter will generate new output. Defaults to 1 / frequency
       if not specified. -->

       are operating in a planar environment and want to ignore the effect of small variations in the
       ground plane that might otherwise be detected by, for example, an IMU. Defaults to false if

In rosparam "odom0_config" , are you using it for x,y position and yaw or for x velocity?

Yes. Idea is to rely on imu for yaw, not on odometry.

(a) Clean up the launch file by removing comments and commented-out parameters

(b) Provide sample input messages

My guess is that you have two_d_mode off and aren't measuring anything for Y and Z or Y and Z velocity, but I need more information.

Did you ever figure this problem out?
