The increment angle is 0.2 rad/s for 3.5 secs. So, this covers 0.7 rads which equals 45 degrees roughly. How does it BB8 rotate 90 degrees? Kindly help figure this out. Thank you!

PS: I've verified that time.sleep() python library takes secs, and ros takes radians in twist msg

First of all, apologies for the late reply. The BB8 simulation has a known error in the odometry plugin. This affects to the rotation of the robot, for instance. As you have noted, this adds an offset of more or less 45 degrees. So, in order to rotate 90 degrees, you should aim to rotate 45 degrees. Hope this answers your question!

This quiz is totally messed up. First my robot couldn't turn 90 degrees before a discover this simulation error. So, I've tested a lot my solution (no problem found) and i have followed all specifications but a i had problems in the quiz correction and my score was terrible. After, I've compared the solution presented and there no differences (functionalities) between mine.
