Changelog for package diff_drive_controller

0.2.0 (2021-02-06)

  • Fix diff drive twist concurrency issues (#146) * Fix diff drive twist concurrency issues Before this fix, a twist message could be received and stored one thread, in the middle of the update() of the controller. This would be fixed by making a copy of the shared pointer at the beginning of the update() function, added realtime box to ensure safe concurrent access to the pointer. * Don\'t store limited command as last command Before these changes, the limited command overwrote the original command, which mean that it too much more time to reach the commanded speed. We only want this behavior when the command is too old and we replace it with 0 speed.

  • Diff drive parameter fixes (#145)

    • Recover old speed limiter behavior, if unspecified min defaults to -max
    • Change cmd_vel_timeout to seconds (double) as ROS1 instead of ms(int)
  • Unstamped cmd_vel subscriber rebased (#143)
