Hi,

Our team is using mecanum wheels for the first time. We have used the regular 4 inch wheels in the past. Autonomous mode was pretty easy with these wheels but now we have questions if the similar geometry holds for the mecanum wheels as well. If your team has prior experience with these, can you please help answer the following :-

1) For straight drives does one rotation still equals to 2*pi*r of linear drive for mecanum ?

2) How does strafing works in autonomous ? e.g. if we need the robot to straf 2 ft. to the left or right what does it translates to in term of wheel diameters and rotation (assuming all wheels rotate by same amount but different directions to achieve strafing) ?

Any inputs are welcome.

Thanks in advance.
