DAGU NEW PRODUCT-OMNI WHEEL VIDEO
There are a lot of cheap omni wheels on the market now but basically they all have plastic rollers which prevent them from working well.
Recently we had molds made for a new version of a common omni wheel so that we could fit it with natural rubber rollers.
The result is a cheap alternative to mecanum wheels that has surprisingly good traction.

We also have some new metal geared motors with a shaft extending out the back so our encoder kit can be fitted to the motors.
The robot uses our Mini Driver as a low cost "smart" motor driver that monititors the encoder to control the motor speed.
