I am working on a platform with like 100 kg weight and a diff drive robot. The wheels are geared and only two.

Currently, I have implemented the navigation stack and can see that the robot drifts to the left sometimes when Nav Goal is sent or does random rotations drifting away from the trajectory.

One other problem is the Navigation Stack says something similar "Aborting...due to oscillations" even without enough retries sometimes. I have tried with both rf2o_odometry and wheel odometry but the results are somehow the same. Also, both DWA and Trajectory planner.

My setup is: Topside computer: ROS Noetic The embedded device on the robot: ROS Melodic

Below are my launch files and config files:

Sensor and TF:

Is it a mistake in the route you are trying to travel, or is the motor following the travel instructions? I suggest checking cmd_vel and visualizing the paths issued by the DWA planner and the global planner (navfn, etc.). If the motor is not running according to the visualized path, the motor is not being controlled according to the running instructions.
