Omnidirectional remote controlled robot

Posted on Thursday, March 24th, 2011 in project logs by Ian

Markus shared his Omnidirectional remote controlled robot in the project log forum:

Recently, I got interested in omni wheels, so I built this little robot. The robot has three pairs of omni wheels. I covered each roll of the omni wheels with liquid rubber (plastidip) to get better traction. I bought the cheapest servos I could find and modified them for continuous rotation. The robot is powered by four eneloop NiMH batteries and controlled by an Arduino nano 3.0.

Check out the video below the break.

Thanks Markus, we’ll send out a free QFP protoboard. Via the forum.

    Thank you very much. If it is possible, I would like to get the 0.50mm version.
