4WD Mecanum Wheel Mobile Robotic Platform Kit

  • $ 1,215.00


This is a four mecanum wheel drive mobile robotic platform. The four mecanum wheels give the mobile robotic platform/kit autonomous omni-directional capabilities, while regular wheels don’t. Each wheel is connected to a separate motor with independent control. The robot can move forward, backward and turn like it would with four regular wheels. The configuration of rollers at 45° also allows the robot to translate sideways, and through a combination of movements, drive in any direction – even while spinning.
 
Furthermore, this robot kit is programmed in C, C++ programming language for Arduino. Sample code is provided. You can program via an easy-to-use Arduino user interface, with easy access to programming functions. It enables researchers, developers and robotics students to write their own software, learn from others accomplishments and configure the hardware as required and desired.
 
There are some pre-drilled screw holes on the rigid aluminum chassis to make expansion easy. Therefore, it could be extended with any equipment you please (cameras, lap-top, art-ware or a micro robot arm, etc). 
 
This 4 wheel drive mobile robot not only operates on flat hard surfaces, but also performs very well on rough terrain and even fairly complex rough terrain.
