How to control a 3 wheel bot in gazebo simulation? It's wheels are arranged at an angle of 120 degrees.

This bot cannot be controlled by normal differential drive as it has 3 wheels instead of 4 or 2. This type of transmission is also called kiwi transmission. I am unable to define it's transmission.

I believe the actual name is a Killough platform type drivetrain/kinematic setup.

Can you please tell how to write gazebo code for its simulation?

No. I just happened to know what these types of configurations are called.

If you're really only interested in Gazebo, I would recommend posting on, not here.
