This is my entry for the VEX Product Design Challenge. It is just a simply controlled holonomic robot.


This is the bill if materials.

This is the description of the robot's drive system and construction.

Thank you foster, for the positive comment. As soon as the competition is over i will post the code.

It looks like you have the programming part down, that's the hardest part of this design. It would be nice if you submitted the code to. On the other hand it would have been nice to see the wheels supported on both ends. That would show how you allowed for space to add extra parts (arms, lifters, etc) to grow the platform.

As I said before the level of entertainment is in the eye of the beholder. In regards to the comments relating to the 360, I find it much more satisfying to create something myself than have it made for me. In my minds eye it would give me much more entertainment to spend my time creating an 8-bit gaming system than spend it playing something I had no hand in the creation of.

Entertaining in th the eye of the beholder. Imagine showing this to a person who has never even heard of let alone seen a holonomic drive. It would be magic to that person and give them hours of entertainment.

sure, being a Three Wheel Holonomic is something but what it does doesnt fit this challenge. it's not entertaining and it doesnt do any activity

This entry is aimed at being entertaining. It is more of a proof of concept because the coordination of the motors were very difficult to and required many hours of perfection as well as an extensive knowledge of trig functions
