This is MultiDirectional Omniwheel robot which can be controlled by ps2 remote. The Robot can be controlled using a PS2 remote using which the robot can travel in the required direction, and also rotate in the required direction as per command provided by the user. Direction and speed of the robot can also be controlled that is in which direction it has to move and with what speed can be controlled by the user merely by ps2 remote.
Also this robot can rotate on its own axis without any lateral movement owing to the construction and use of the omni-wheels along with dc encoder motors providing it a level of high flexibility in change of directions in tight spots where turning radius is not available.
This Omniwheel has 4 High Torque DC Geared Encoder motors and high quality omniwheels with a diameter of 58mm. The robot has a payload capacity of 3 KG weight which is suitable for carrying loads like cameras, camcorders with Pan-tilt and other small equipments and electronics.
Direction, Speed and Angle can be controlled by PS2 remote.
Dimension: 36cm (L) x 36cm (W) x 12.5cm (H)
Weight: 2.7 Kg
This Robot platform with Omni Wheels and Dc Encoder Servo Motors provides a high degree of accuracy and agility for change in directions. The Robot does not need to rotate to change direction, Hence it is perfectly suited for places with sharp corners where turning is not possible. Following are the few of the applications where this concept platform can be used -
In competitions like Robot Football where rapid changes of directions are required with agility and without turning the robot. The robot can be used in manual mode or autonomous mode as per the programming by the user..
This can be used for SLAM applications using RP LIDAR laser sensors available to create a locally aware mobile platform and interfacing with various AI algorithms can provide an intelligently moving Robot.
