ROS in 5 days - Services_quiz - the BB8 is jerky!


I have completed the services_quiz project that makes the BB8 robot move in squares. I noticed that the robot jerks forward and back to stop at every edge of the square. Please can you suggest what I could do to maybe slow down the robot so that it stops without jerking forward. Thank you.

The BB8 is jerky by nature due to its high inertia. You can’t push it around like a regular level-headed robot :wink:.

The trick would be to use very low speeds when moving or turning the robot, say 0.1 or even lower.

Thank you @bayodesegun. I would try that.
