UPsquared Robomaker motion is jerky
I bring up Ubuntu 18.04 preloaded image. I run the ROS2 example using:
ros2 launch hamster_driver ros2_camera_and_driver.launch.py
I launch rqt and set the speed value in ackermann_cmd topic to 0.01.
The movement is not smooth but instead it moves in bursts. It moves for a second, stops and then moves for a second, stop and so on.
I don't know how to debug this. I am suspecting the motor. I don't want to order another prokit that costs $1800 just because the motor is faulty. Can someone please help me debug and identify the cause for this? Also, can I please get the information on the model of the DC motor that is used?
PS: it would be really amazing, if the motor control board on the prokit is available for purchase separately and the details of the models of other components were specified in the spec document.
