Hello, I am on an EIS committee that donates to the school and I remembered you had a robotics club. I have three radio controlled robots that I am looking to donate. Two of these work, and the other could be good for parts. Please contact me if you would like them.
My name is Matt Leary and I work for Logo Loc in Manchester. We are the apparel provider to US First. We are offering individual teams special pricing on team t-shirts. We have designs that can be used (and customized to your team) or we can use any design you have.
Please feel free to contact me at 603-493-8175 or at email@example.com
I look forward to hearing from you.
There is no traction control in the system -- the driver was just going up slowly. The gearboxes are AndyMark's Toughboxes at a 24:1 ratio. We're using Java to program, but there's nothing preventing you from using C++ or Python (we've never used LabView, so I can't attest to how effective that will be at making custom Mecanum code). Mecanums don't really have a great loss in terms of traction in comparison to other solid rubber wheels like those given in the 2012 KoP, but you have to have a balanced weight or some wheels will slip and make climbing up the bridge a bit harder (20 to 30% of total weight should be on each wheel). Again, this should be a common occurrence among similar wheels with solid rubber tires.
Sorry for the late reply; hope it helps.
While discussing options for a drive train we searched the internet for examples of mecanum drive systems on ramps with low friction and we found your youtube video. Our programer would like to know if you use some type of traction control coded into the drive system or are just driving up the ramp normally. What language to you use for programming? Please also include your thoughts and observations of the mecanum wheels on the ramp.
