Do you have the environment variable VRC_CHEATS_ENABLED set to 1? The ros topics for controlling the vehicle are provided as a development aid, but will not be available during the Virtual Robotics Challenge. As such, they are disabled by default, but are available by setting the VRC_CHEATS_ENABLED variable.

For example, to launch VRC task 1 with cheats enabled:

VRC_CHEATS_ENABLED=1 roslaunch atlas_utils vrc_task_1.launch

You could also make that setting persistent in your shell:

export VRC_CHEATS_ENABLED=1

Then subsequent launches will include cheats.
