About Mecanum Wheel Movement Principle


The movement principle of Mecanum wheel
1. The omnidirectional movement method is based on the principle of a central wheel with many axles located around the wheel. These angled peripheral axles convert part of the wheel steering force into a normal force of the wheel.
2.Depending on the direction and speed of the respective wheels, the final synthesis of these forces is generated in any required direction. A resultant force vector ensures that the platform can move freely in the direction of the final resultant force vector without changing the machine The direction of the wheel itself.
3. There are many small rollers diagonally distributed on its rim, so the wheel can slide laterally. The busbar of the small roller is very special. When the wheel rotates around a fixed wheel mandrel, the envelope of each small roller is a cylindrical surface, so the wheel can continuously roll forward.
4. The Mecanum wheel has a compact structure and flexible movement, and is a very successful all-round wheel. There are four such new wheels combined, which can be more flexible and convenient to achieve all-round movement function.
