Re: How is the turn rate of the RMP computed?

We made our own OCU which I verified the max yaw rate is at its max (4.5) and the value being sent for the yaw command is correct (we recorded the yaw_rate_target_rps as it was running). So what is the turn rate based on? Because even on blocks (no load on the wheels) the differential_wheel_vel_rps ...

How is the turn rate of the RMP computed?

I'm a bit confused about how the RMP 440 determines its turn rate. We put the RMP 440 on blocks and ran it at a turn rate of 3 rad/s yet the differential_wheel_vel_rps read 2.5 rad/s. The wheel diameter and the track width were left at their default values. Why is there a difference between these tw...
