How To Build a Swerve-Drive Robot

Vehicles with conventional steering mechanisms like Ackermann steering and differential-drive serve distinct purposes. With wheels engineered to maintain constant contact with a driving surface, these vehicles navigate reliably between destinations, albeit with a restricted range of directional movement. A swerve-drive provides an approach with significantly more freedom. For dozens of navigation use cases, these conventional
