Is it one of these?

The website is under a bit of construction to get ready for the 2020 season. Here’s an archived version of the slides Simbot Seminar Series - Drivetrain Design.pdf (1.7 MB) as well as a YouTube video of the presentation.

Bingo! Thank you both! I was a little surprised when I went looking and couldn’t find it. As I had looked at it 2 weeks ago without issue. Ive used it for the last several years to remind students when starting the design process what all the funny words are.

I thought 118 Flyby was 5 omni drive = H drive? Presentation says Slide drive and the H drive has 4 wheels at 45 degrees.

It says slide drive which is also called H drive, and then it has holonomic which is sometimes called X drive. I think the H in H drive refers to the actual look of the wheels when viewed from above not as a short form of holonomic.

Thanks for clearing up the confusion: I thought H was a short for Holonomic
