If you're unfamiliar with mecanum wheels, this 60mm Diameter Mecanum Wheel may resemble an everyday chunky wheel Frankenstein'd out of mini hair curler rollers. In reality, it's a very cool, omnidirectional wheel with rollers, allowing a four-wheeled robot to move in any direction. There are rubber beads around the perimeter of the wheel that lets it grip the floor when moving sideways.
What wheels should your robot car use? How about the Mecanum wheel! The Mecanum wheel is an omnidirectional wheel design for a land-based vehicle to move in any direction, such as go straight, diagonal, horizontally, S-line, and rotate at any angle with zero radius.
With pretty low noise, this kind of wheel can move stably and flexibly in operation. Since the wheel is based on omnidirectional drive technology, users can freely control their robot car even in a tight space. This Mecanum wheel has a diameter of 60mm and is composed of 9 small rollers, which are rugged and impact-resistant.
Please note that the motors are not included, these wheels are compatible with Lego and these geared motors.
Here is a great video of a robot built by Innok Robotics that uses the same kind of wheels
