That’s cool. Did you get the design from someone or did you think of it yourself?

i design all my robots myself

That really is quite ingenious

Some improvements:

  • Reduce the number of gears required for drive. Lesser gears = lower loss
  • Able to vary amount of friction applied to the wheel to have varying amounts of slip.
