• Economical platform of 3WD omni-wheel
• Easy to install
• Programmable Arduino microcontroller board
• Arduino 328 Controller
The 3WD 100mm Omni-Directional Triangle Mobile Robot Kit is based on a 3WD omni-wheel chaise. It could move in any direction by changing the velocity and direction of each wheels without changing its orientation. This robot help you get acquainted with the omni-wheel platform, embedded system. Its aluminum alloy body and pre-drilled hole for screws make it convenient for you to add components as you like.
Omni-directional wheels are unique as they are able to roll freely in two directions. It can either roll like a normal wheel or roll laterally using the wheels along its circumference. Omni-direction wheels allow a robot to convert from a non-holonomic to a holonomic robot. A non-holonomic robot that uses normal wheels has only 2 out of 3 controllable degrees of freedom which are, moving forward/backwards and rotation. Not being able to move side ways makes a robot slower and less efficient in reaching its given goal. The holonomic omni-directional wheels are able to overcome this problem, as it is a highly maneuverable. Unlike normal non-holonomic robot, the holonomic omni-directional robot can move in an arbitrary direction continuously without changing the direction of the wheels. It can move back and forth, sideways and rotates at the same position.

• Pre-drilled holes and spare space make it expandable
Arduino 328 microcontroller board
It is a microcontroller board based on the Arduino 168. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 8 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
Arduino IO Expansion
Nexus Robot provides the ultimate functional expansion for Arduino IO Expansion V1.2 and gives you extra ease to connect device such as sensors, servo and RS485 device. This sensor expansion board is able to easily connect a number of commonly used sensors.
