Robotino problem

Hello, I'm trying to simulate the Robotino robot on V-Rep. I have so far: 1- imported from an urdf file (originally used for gazebo). 2- corrected the measurements according to the real robot. 3- written a ROS script to control via joystick. To simulate the wheels of robotino I put free joints perpe...
