Kinematic Analysis of Omnidirectional Mecanum wheeled Robot
Keywords:Robotics, Control system, Mechatronics, Mobile robot, Visual predictive control
This study used the V-rep simulation environment to develop an omnidirectional, four-wheeled Robot model and perform kinematic analysis using youBot. Given their extensive use, it is essential to understand how Mecanum wheels' speeds convert into robot velocities before moving on to a dynamic model that governs how wheel torques translate into robot accelerations. This paper investigates the rate at which the wheels must be driven given the desired chassis velocity, also limit on the chassis velocity, given a limit on the individual wheel operating speed.
