We can’t decide which to get and frankly don’t know what we should consider when deciding which to get. The 6in look like they might hold up better since it’s one solid piece per side. I’m also guessing the 6in ones are lighter. What else should we consider?
You’ll want to look at your gearing options; an 8" wheel is going to travel further for each revolution than a 6" wheel (thus the robot will go faster).
Another thing to note is that the 6" wheels can be assembled as left or right wheels, while the 8" wheels only go together one way. If your funds are limited (whose aren’t?), having to stock fewer wheels as spares can be beneficial.
Well the kit gives us a Gyro so I’m guessing we will use that. It also gives us two gear two sensors which I think can be used as rotation sensors? If we use those we would need to get two more for the other wheels.
I guess what I’m asking is what sensors do we need to best use mecanum drive?
