Mobile robot with Mecanum wheels: categorically all-terrain
Swedish Mecanum employee Bergt Ilon created this strange, aggressive-looking wheel, which looks like something taken straight from a Mad Max movie, in 1973. He’d just invented the now famous Mecanum wheel, capable of rolling in all directions:
- Forwards and in reverse, like any other wheel
- In pure rotation, allowing your robot to turn on itself
- Sideways, so your robot can move around obstacles in a crab-like movement
Each of the robot kit’s 4 wheels is equipped with its own motor and can be controlled individually, offering spectacular freedom of movement.
