The 4 inch (100mm) aluminum Mecanum wheel is comprised of a series of rollers, mounted so that their axis of rotation is 45 to the axis of the main wheel. As the wheels rotate in sync, the vehicle moves forward or in reverse normally, but by spinning pairs of wheels in opposite directions, the rollers enable sideways movement. Put it all together and you can move forward, backward, laterally, diagonally, or spin in a circle. Also included are twelve extra bolts (60 mm long) for bolting on the 6mm Nexus aluminum wheel hub or the 8mm Nexus aluminum wheel hub.
Each roller is supported by plastic sleeve bearing. These wheels will not support as much weight as our other 4" Mecanum Wheels with Ball Bearings.
Several wheel hub options are available for you to select from below.
The 4 inch (100mm) aluminum Mecanum wheel set (2x Left, 2x Right) allows your robot to easily move forward and backward (reverse), laterally, diagonally, or spin in a circle. Each roller is supported with ball bearings.
The four Mecanum wheels are each connected to a separate motor with independent control. The robot can drive in any direction - even while spinning!
The DSP Beacon can be used in both the Non-Inverse Architecture (NIA) and in the Inverse Archicture (IA).
This is a MLT-JR tracked programmable robot platform and is equipped with 32mm motors, motor controller, and Arduino. This Arduino robot can be programmed to be a autonomous robot.
