Above robot cars are controlled by Arduino. if you have raspberry pi board, actually the robot car can also be controlled by Raspberry Pi. You can visit the following link to learn basic movement with raspberry pi.

Use Raspberry Pi to control Mecanum Omni wheel robot car


Mecanum Omni wheel is a very powerful wheel technology which allows robot car make omni-directional movement( parallel shift to left and right).

In this project, we will show how to use Arduino to control an Osoyoo Brand Mecanum wheel robot car.

OSOYOO Mecanum Wheels Robotic Car Chassis x 1 (2xleft-wheels/2xright-wheels and Motor x 4)
OSOYOO MEGA2560 board fully compatible with Arduino
OSOYOO V1.3 Wifi Shield x 1
OSOYOO Model X motor driver x 2
OSOYOO HC02 Bluetooth Module
OSOYOO battery box x 1
18650 batteries(3.7V) x 2  (the kit don’t include the batteries,click it to buy it separately)

Specifications:


First, please install the hardware as following pictures,   insert OSOYOO wifi shield into arduino Mega2560 board.


Do NOT forget installing the two screws in following red box.




There are two types of Mecunum wheels, A and B Mecunum wheel; the difference between them is the orientation of rollers. For A Mecunum wheel, as shown below, rollers are orientated from lower right to upper left. Rollers for B wheels are installed in the opposite way.

A correct configuration requires each of four wheels is set in the way as shown below, where the rotation axis of each wheel’s top roller points to the center of the platform. Please notice that all the dynamic analysis and prewritten codes are based on this configuration.


Before connect wires, make sure you have inserted OSOYOO Wifi Shield onto MEGA2560 board already.

Motor Driver to Arduino UNO connection


Caution:
When insert/remove the 6-pin parallel cable plug into Model X 6-pin male socket,  please hold the black plastic pin-holder to do operation. Never drag the wires to pull the plug out of the socket, otherwise it will damage the wires.

Open-source Arduino
Software(IDE)
Download Arduino IDE here:
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software?setlang=en
7 zip is a free zip
utility that un-zips zip files
Download 7zip here for free

Step 1: Install latest Arduino IDE (If you have Arduino IDE version after 1.1.16, please skip this step). Download Arduino IDE from https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software?setlang=en , then install the software.

Step 2: Download https://osoyoo.com/driver/mecanum_metal_chassis/for_mega2560/metal-2560-lesson1.zip, unzip the download zip file lesson1.zip, you will see a folder called lesson1 .

( or Download https://osoyoo.com/driver/mecanum_metal_chassis/for_mega2560/metal-2560-lesson1-reverse.zip, unzip the download zip file lesson1.zip, you will see a folder called lesson1 .)

Step 3: Connect mega2560 board to PC with USB cable, Open Arduino IDE -> click file -> click Open -> choose code “lesson1.ino” in lesson1 folder, load the code into arduino.

Step 4: Choose corresponding board/port for your project,upload the sketch to the board.

After running Lesson 1 code, the car will move

Forward/Backward; Left turn,Right turn;
Right Parallel Shift/Left Parallel Shift;
Down Left Diagonal / Up Right Diagonal;
Up Left Diagonal / Down Right Diagonal;

If the car does not move as per this sequence , you need check the wire connection.

Note: If you mecanum wheel car doesn’t move as per the above sequence,  rather than the following sequence, you need to download the other series code again, in order to make sure that the car in next lesson work normally.

Backward/Forward; Right turn,Left turn;
Left Parallel Shift/Right Parallel Shift;
Up Right Diagonal/Down Left Diagonal;
Down Right Diagonal/Up Left Diagonal;

you need to download the following file and unzip the download zip file lesson.zip.
