Hi,all: I added the plugin in pioneer3at model like this:

   <model name='pioneer3at'>
      <plugin name='SkidSteerDrivePlugin' filename=''>

But when I run the gazebo and then publish topic'~/pioneer3at/vel_cmd' using rqt_gui, the pioneer did not move.Also, any possible topic name has been tried. Anyone know why the pioneer did not move?

Using rqt_gui, you're probably trying to publish to ROS topics, rather than Gazebo topics, which is what your plugin is subscribed to.

You can check the list of Gazebo topics with active publishers/subscribers with gz topic -l, and the list of ROS topics with rostopic list.

You can try writing a Gazebo publisher like this.
