I am using the following gazebo plugin to model a diff drive mobile robot in gazebo and then doing a PID for velocity control of the mobile robot.

I understand that in order to do a PID controller for the movement, i need to sense the current velocity of the robot. and get the error between that and the reference velocity.

Problem is then how do I get the current velocity?
