Hi everyone,

I’m trying to move an object on the ground without any friction in GAZEBO.

I created the default box model on the ground, and set both of mu and mu2 to zero. I left the default values in the other model parameters.

I set the gravity to (-0.1, 0, -9.8), and started the simulation. Although there was no friction force between the box and ground and no deceleration of the box, the box stopped moving suddenly in about 1 second in simulation time.

I implemented the ft_sensor on the model, it showed zero force and torque after the stop. It seemed that any calculation about the force was not conducted.

What happened? Can anyone help me fix this problem?

@chapulina Your updated answer completely solves my problem! I didn't know the ODE auto-disable feature. Thank you so mu

@winston It is because I apply a force in the x-direction to the box. Adding initial small velocity in the x-direction

@chapulina Thank you for your reply! I tried your code, and the box did not stop. However, it still stopped when I chang
