Wondering how to make a drive with a suspension system where wheel(s) will go over the bump, but then return to ground level to continue driving.
My prototype that I am in the process of making is a 8 wheel, deciding 6 or 3 motor drive. My plans for the two outer wheels to be stationary while the two wheels in the middle have some sort of suspension system that allows it to move up and down freely yet motorized for it to be able to move. When the drive goes over the bump I hope to have the two wheels return to the floor mats to have a fully functioning 8 wheel drive.
Right now I have seen robots with 8 wheel drives but the two wheels in the middle are just hanging whenever it is on the floor mats and is only used for going over bumps.
