Manually moving a Pioneer robot using P2OS

asked 2012-05-23 06:52:56 -0500

We have a Pioneer robot (P3DX) and when we send a Twist message with a forward movement to the base (/cmd_vel) but the robot doesn't start moving immediately. But if a rotation movement is sent (just rotation, no forward velocity), it does rotate immediately.

Is this a known behaviour of the P2OS stack? or the robot? or is this some kind of bug?

More likely some kind of configuration error.

This is my configuration:

<node pkg="p2os_driver" type="p2os" name="p2os"> <param name="use_sonal" value="false"/> <param name="port" type="string" value="/dev/ttyUSB0"/> <remap from="pose" to="/odom"/> </node>

What configuration could I be missing?

I forgot to put my findings. After a while I realised that the PID parameters where changed. I updated them and now the robot is response to moving commands is much more faster.

you can try to set the pulse parameter in the to 1(original -1).
