The Azimut 2 Omnidirectional Robot
January 06, 2006
Robomotio, and the Laborious Mobile Robotics research laboratory at Sherbrooke University in Quebec have completed their "Azimut 2" Omnidirectional robotic platform.
The Azimut 2 is powered by two 24V NiMH battery packs and an external power tether, with an elastic actuator, vertical suspension system and high efficiency brushless motor and gearbox driving each wheel. The result is four independent directed wheels, suitable for operation over both flat surfaces and uneven terrains. The Azimut 2 can change the direction of these wheels through 180 degrees, making the robot capable of moving sideways without changing its heading. That's the omnidirectional part.
The Mini-ITX part (of course) is the Pentium M Mini-ITX motherboard providing high-level processing functionality, which in turn drives the low-level controllers through a shared 1 Mbps CAN bus.
Specifications: Overall Dimensions: 60 x 52 x 29 cm; Weight: 35 kg; Max Slope: 35°; Payload: 34Kg; Max Speed: 5.3 km/h; Max Direction System Speed: 180 °/s; Direction System Continuous Torque: 9.8 Nm; Max Wheel Torque: 8.5 Nm; Wheel Diameter: 16 cm.
