Hi all.

I'd like to translate /cmd_vel(geometry_msgs::Twist) to ackermann_msgs::ackermannDrive.

Linear speed is same in two msgs.(linear.x = speed)

How can I covert angular velocity to steering angle?(angular.z --> steering_angle)

Are there nodes for it? I couldn't find to translate from angular velocity to steering angle.

Could you please let me know equation and necessary parameters?

Not sure if you still need to know, but ...

Theta_dot would be angular.z and phi is steering angle
