I am currently running a differential drive setup robot configured to run on GMapping, custom made odometry publisher and navigation stack(move_base, costmap_2d). I have the following errors and warnings with the param settings given below:

  1. I get the following error when giving a goal on the map (map and current position are perfect ).( I created a map from recording /scan topic on a bag file)

    [ WARN] [1487352631.099260113]: MessageFilter [target=map ]: Discarding message from [/move_base] due to empty frame_id. This message will only print once.

    [ WARN] [1487352631.099750851]: Invalid argument passed to canTransform argument source_frame in tf2 frame_ids cannot be empty

  2. move_base linear and angular velocities aren't getting tracked. The robot just weirdly rotates at full speed and performs in place rotation, and goes away from the goal given. BUT , using keyboard to publish cmd_vel works and the robot moves around perfectly. Which suggests the move_base isn't configured properly.

  3. Sometimes, the above two problems don't come up but the robot veers away just as it reaches the goal at a high speed(away from the goal).

The robot has a square base with motors kept at either centres of sides of square with a castor wheel at center.
