Drive Kinematics: Skid Steer & Mecanum (ROS Twist included)


drive kinematics

Hi all I am often in need of the basic kinematic motion equations for skid steer vehicles. I have also recently been working with mecanum wheeled vehicles. The skid steer equations are fairly simple and easy to find, however I will include it in different versions and include a ROS approach. The mecanum wheel equations […]

GPS and Global Absolute Positioning
