An example of a holonomic robot would be one that is equipped with three independently driven Mecanum wheels or omni-wheels, mounted in a triangular configuration. This is generally called a Kiwi Drive. A robot that utilizes Kiwi Drive can simultaneously execute controlled motion through both the X and Y axes, and rotational movement.From: beam-wiki
For a few weeks now I've been cading out a base for this robot. It will have a 6-8inch diameter.
Here are some of the versions of the bases I went through:
So far this is all I can do. These were made in AutoDesk Inventor, this project will ultimately allow me to learn more about Arudino, C#, motors, h-bridges, and many other things. It will be controlled in the end using my android phone, via a bluetooth module. It will stay as an idea until I can get some money (motors are expensive you know).
The motors I'm looking at right now are:
The motor mounts I'm looking at are these:
I'll keep this blog updated with my progress.
