    On a flat smooth surface the calculated is perfect on it's own
    Assuming your wheels don't deform, and your axles are perfectly centered, and everything is straight and square...
    Easy in simulation, never true in reality!

    But we are not talking about wheels but my hexapod stack. As long as you have properly measured out your hexapod in the xacro file it should be highly accurate. I suppose if your feet slip you could be off.... I've mapped my entire house with odometry that was purely calculated. The point cloud looked great with just higher concentration of points in places I doubled back on.
