My team and I are developing a robot that follows a dynamic object in real time. As hardware we are using Odrive controller and hoverboard motors. ROS for the software (irrelevant for this matter). The control method we use is setting the values for “vel_setpoint”. The robot on its own works perfectly, but when we add weight (40Kg) to it, it oscillates because it does not brake fast enough (the inertia). Is there a way that braking works more aggressively or may it be better to use other control method?
Thank you in advance for your help.
