Our key requirement is to make the robot move along a customized path (see below). We are able to simulate the correct path in Gazebo and visualize using Rviz. The problem is that the real robot doesn't follow the correct path even when the simulator shows it moving along the correct path.

Setup details: Turtlebot3 - Burger bought in Dec 2019. Remote PC - Windows 10, VirtualBox, Ubuntu 16.04 SBC - Raspbian as given in the e-manual Installed Gazebo as per the e-manual.

We have defined the path using a script that is inspired by the Turtlebot3_client and Turtlebot3_server nodes in the Examples folder of the Turtlebot3 package.

Can you please suggest what's wrong here? Do you think there is a problem with the robot's wheel encodersimage description
