Make Multidirectional Robot with Mecanum Wheel Robot!

The Quarky Mecanum Wheel Robot features a unique type of wheel consisting of four rollers mounted at 45-degree angles to the wheel’s hub, each with its own motor that can spin in two directions. This wheel design provides exceptional mobility, making it the perfect choice for navigating tight spaces and obstacles. In addition, the mecanum wheel robot can execute sharp turns on the spot without the need to reverse direction.

Our kit includes both a book and online resources that cover over 10 projects in detail for the Mecanum Robot. The book provides step-by-step instructions for assembling the rover and programming it using Block & Python coding for various applications.

FAQs on Quarky Mecanum Robot Addon Kit

Quarky Addon kits are innovative do-it-yourself (DIY) kits that offer a wide variety of fields to explore, including Humanoid Robots, Mars Rover, Robotic Arm, Internet of Things, and more. Each kit comes fully equipped with all the necessary materials and instructions to create over 10 projects using coding, AI, and robotics. The opportunities to learn are endless.

There are two options available:

  1. With Quarky: In this option, you get a Quarky board with the kit. Qaurky is the brain of the Mecanum Robot and is required to run any project. So, if you do not have a Quarky board with you, then this is the right choice.
  2. Without Quarky: In this option, the Quarky board will not come with the kit. You will have to arrange or buy it separately to run the Mecanum Robot. 

No, Quarky is an intuitive learning tool that is suitable for both novice and experienced coders. It is programmed using a graphical programming platform named PictoBlox which allows you to build your project by using Block Coding as well as Python. In addition, the interactive graphical programming interface adds fun to the learning and makes the whole experience even more immersive.

The kit includes a book and online resources to facilitate learning.

The kit is suitable for students aged 10 and up. Some students with a passionate interest in technology and learning have been able to create projects beyond their age range using the kit.

Quarky is a powerful, portable device that allows users to create complex projects with its 3.7V Li–ion battery support, two tactile switches, five capacitive touch sensors, two infrared sensors, and general–purpose input–output pins. It includes 35 programmable RGB LEDs in a 7×5 grid for creating animations, writing text, and displaying patterns, as well as a good-quality speaker for human-like audio or buzzing. Additionally, it has Wi–Fi and Bluetooth compatibility, and multipurpose input/output pins that can be used to interface with any third–party sensors. Quarky also has protections for reverse polarity, overvoltage, and overcurrent.

PictoBlox lets you code the Quarky Mecanum Robot using Python. Python is currently available on Windows, MacOS, Linux, and the web version only. It’s not yet available on smartphones, but it will be coming soon.

Follow the steps:

  1. Connect Quarky to your laptop with a USB cable.
  2. Open PictoBlox and select Python Coding as the coding environment.
  3. Select the board as Quarky and click Connect.
  4. Next, select the appropriate Serial port if the Quarky is connected via USB or the Bluetooth Port if you want to connect Quarky via Bluetooth and press Connect.
  5. To enable interaction with the board in real-time, use the following object declaration in Python: meca = Mecanum(1, 2, 7, 8).
  6. To enable the program to run offline and allow Quarky to run without the computer, use the following object declaration in Python:

    from quarky import *
    from expansion_addon import Mecanum
    meca = Mecanum(1, 2, 7, 8)
