Hi, I am going to introduce a 4 omni wheel arduino compatible robotics car for autonomous and research applications. It is capable of moving in an arbitrary direction continuously without changing the direction of the wheels. It includes Arduino microcontroller, IO expansion and DC motor with encoders, and can be programmable with the open source Arduino Language. It is a useful learning kit for students to learn and enjoy of the fun of omni directional movements.
