When I command a robot (turtlebot3) simulated in Gazebo to go 1m/second (via rostopic pub) in the x direction and no rotation, it drives erratically. Specifically it starts going on a straight line along the x direction, but soon it veers off and soon its doing a loopy pattern. I was imagining that I am asking that the the simulated robot is going faster than it can, but that doesn't make so much sense to me. Is there an explanation?

This reads like a duplicate of #q333323.

Could be, but that doesn't really make it ok to post duplicates.
