TURTLE 8-Wheeled Base
|CST Group, TU/e|
|Software Flow Charts|
As an alternative for the three-wheeled base RoboCup Middle Size League soccer robots of Tech United Eindhoven, an eight-wheeled version was designed consisting of four wheel sets, each having two hub-drive wheels, thus being five times over-constrained. To avoid an over-constrained design, each wheel set has an internal degree of freedom. The last constraint is addressed by a hinging axle at the back of the robot. The main advantages compared to the three-wheeled platform are the possibility to apply the torque delivered by the motors in the desired direction in order to achieve a higher acceleration in this direction.
