mecanum wheels

Has anyone had any luck implementing a mecanum wheel robot platform? I have tried adapting the YouBot model used in Gazebo, but the wheels don't move.

It is a challenging simulation problem. Make sure to 'unlock' the joint motors first, as usual.
(for each joint, setJointMotorControl2(obUid, linkIndex, p.VELOCITY_CONTROL, force=0 or close to 0).
I haven't created such robot yet, it may require a lot of effort to set this up properly.
