pic: More Robotics Clear Crab Drive



Here is More Robotics prototype crab module. We are using the drive belt as the riding surface to eliminate a separate wheel. And like every thing we build, it is clear.

Alright, you guys win. We built our swerve last year out of 3/8" Lexan , but y’all’s does look cleaner and probably a bit more stable. Our modules acted a little like ABS, which actually served to our advantage…

Ditto.

That’s one nice crabdrive

I like it, but I’d be worried to see what happens when it’s pushed sideways. I’d be worried of either breaking that belt, or it derailing.

But that sure is neat looking.

This is a better picture of the module, but a lot of discussion’s happened here.

Thanks for your kind words and especially for your constructive criticisms.
