I attached a long thin gun to the flange of the robot (tool0) with a fixed type joint called FTsensor_joint. Then I made the tag < provideFeedback> and < disableFixedJointLumping> true so that the plugin could measure the force and torque of FTsensor_joint. However the result is abnormal because the Y-axis value has a big noise than X-axis and Z-axis like this image description

It seems like a noise of 50HZ, but I'm not quite sure.The problem is why noise of Y-axis(force) is much bigger? And how to eliminate it? Another strange thing is when I made the tag of joint link_6-tool0 < disableFixedJointLumping> true the noise turned to be very small like this image description

but Y-axis is still abnormal and has an initial drift. Why?? The platform I am using is ROS-Indigo with Gazebo7. Thanks a lot if you answer my question!

Hi ! I had the similar issue my force toque sensor, I am using UR5 robot with Melodic. I had the noise at force in z direction. In my case, problem was , my UR5 has an additional box link at end effector . so the box was exerting that force and torque in z direction which makes sense. Hope this helps someone !

Keep up the good work ! lets grow together ;)
