Abstract

Our team has decided that there is currently a need for a driveline system that is capable of performing a zero radius turn and being maneuverable at low speeds while also maintaining traction, stability, and energy efficiency at high speeds. We designed and prototyped a modified Ackermann steering system driven by a single motor, with an extended range of motion. This driveline system also enforces that all wheels are driven in all conditions. The steering system was integrated into a robot chassis that meets FIRST Robotics Competition requirements.
