Mecanum and Omni wheel kinematic and force analysis and programming. Omni vs mecanum force and kinematic comparison. Bump-free mecanum roller profile.


-----------------Mecanum Kinematic Analysis---------------------------


Given a desired vehicle motion, shows how to calculate
the necessary mecanum wheel speeds to achieve that motion.

--------------Mecanum Force Vector Analysis--------------------------


explains the forces and torques acting on a mecanum wheel,
and why a mecanum vehicle has less traction

----------Mecanum Programming: Single and Double Joystick------------


--------------Halo Auto-Rotate (Halo-AR) Driver interface--------------

A single 2-axis joystick does field-centric control of forward/reverse
and strafe right/left motion, while the robot automatically and
simultaneously rotates to face the direction it is commanded.


----------------Omni vs Mecanum Forces and Kinematics-----------------



------------------Omni Rotation Calculator---------------------------


Calculates the required speeds of each of the 4 omni wheels to achieve
rotation about an arbitrary center of rotation (which may be located
outside the robot frame).

-------------Omni rotation derivation of equations-----------------


shows how the equations used in the omni rotation calculator were derived.

--------------- "Bump-Free" Mecanum Roller Design------------------------

how to profile a mecanum roller so that it is "bump-free",
ie it conforms to the circular circumference of the wheel

equations for "bump-free" mecanum roller profile RevC:

bump-free mecanum roller equations (alternate derivation):

Win32 "bump-free" mecanum roller profile calculator:

Excellent paper, though maybe a little heavy-duty for most HS students.

These are awesome, not too heavy for me (student)!
