Since I can remember I always wanted to build a mecanum wheel robot. The mecanum wheel robotic platforms available on the market were a little too expensive for me so I decided to build my robot from scratch.
Like no other robot meacanum wheel robot can move across without any difficulty. This feature makes it unique and allows for easy maneuvering in tight spaces without the need to rotate in place.
Well, it's time to get down to work!
Parts needed in this project:
The first thing to do was to cut a piece of plastic plate (153x260 mm). In the next step I screwed the dc motors placed in a metal tube to the plastic base. Instead of 2 metal tubes you can also use 4 metal holders for dc motors. The last step in robot chassis construction was fitting the wheels.
