So basically, I am new to VESC and I am having difficulty with understanding on how to use the VESC package. I do not really get on where I have to set my parameters (eg. current) and what parameters are really required for the motor to work. Currently, I've made a publisher node which sets the duty_cycle value but the motor still does not run and when I run rostopic echo /commands/motor/duty_cycle, the duty_cycle value is 0. I already have configured the vesc using the vesc tool. so basically, i want to know what configurations i must do for the vesc to work with ros I will appreciate any help and I am willing to clarify myself if need be. Thanks in advance.

p.s

My fw is 5.1. The package I am using is https://github.com/raess1/Vesc-ROS-FW.... i have connected the vesc using the USB port.
