Drive Selection – Wheels, tracks and more


Marsokhod 6x6 is completely articulated in pitch, roll and yaw.

In the past we have looked at wheel design and the kinematics of skid steer and mecanum wheels. In this post we will take a quick look at different types of mobility types (ie. wheels, tracks, and how to connect them) for drive selection. I know the items in this list are not direct comparisons. […]

Drive Kinematics: Skid Steer & Mecanum (ROS Twist included)


drive kinematics

Hi all I am often in need of the basic kinematic motion equations for skid steer vehicles. I have also recently been working with mecanum wheeled vehicles. The skid steer equations are fairly simple and easy to find, however I will include it in different versions and include a ROS approach. The mecanum wheel equations […]
