i am currently working with the gazebo model of the husky a200. i can launch the robot in gazebo and drive around with him but i dont get correct odometry data.

If i check it with rviz it's correct as long as i drive front and back but if i turn a little bit the odometry goes elsewhere.

I need correct odometry data in gazebo but i dont know how to fix this problem.

can anyone help me?

Could you just elaborate on what happens to the odometry when you turn the vehicle in simulation? Does the yaw angle not follow a frame convention you expect? Or does the position information not look right?


PS: I fully realize this should really be a comment to the question and not an answer. Apologies. I don't seem to have the option (permission?) to write a comment :S. If anyone has a clue why, I'd love to hear it (maybe a bug fix?).

For me there was no issue making a comment in this answer or any other. Is it something to do with low karma? am nt sure abt tht!

Yes. My guess is also Karma. I can comment on my own answer. Just not the original question!
