This might not be directly related to ROS, but I'm wondering if anyone encountered this issue and can help me.

I have a couple of motors on my mobile base other than the drive motors, and they tend to create vibration in the robot. When these motors are turned on, the wheel's encoder ticks increase without any actual movement. This is destroying my odometry. As I need the motors to be on all the time, I need some help to figure this out.

How to avoid false encoder counts like these due to vibration?

I'm sorry, but this is indeed not a ROS problem.

As we have over 53000 questions already, we must stay on-topic.

I'd advise you to post your question on a more suitable forum.

If/when you do, please post a comment here with a link to your new question, so we can keep things connected.
