Significant amount of international and Hungarian studies relate to robotics. This group
consists of UAV-s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), fully or partially controlled units taking
part in rescuing and some children’s game too. Omnidirectional drives are a main part of
robotics that can be used on flat surfaces. The wheel of these drives are special, because
there are rollers around it allowing sliding.
Our goal was to build a device that could be used for the purpose of research and could
be included in educational duties. We used a platform that has special wheels (Swedish
wheel) which allow the modul to change its orientation and position independently.
First I describe the aforementioned platform, then the hardware in detail that was
designed for the module. A layer of application code had to be written for the platform
for its fundamental functions to be usable. I had to create a control that can interpret
position information from the computer and control the wheels accordingly. Finally I had to
implement a client that could send control information to the platform and read information
