I have a four wheel drive robot that I call Donkey. My intention is to make it aid in taking care of
1.5 acres of vineyard and other outside chores. Right now the four wheel drive consist of 4 wheel chair brushed motors being driven by (2) 2x60 Sabertooth motor controllers. The controllers are both controlled by a single Jetson Nano. The Nano has an M.2 slot which accepts WiFi adapter and I can run the Donkey headless with a gui I developed using Qt. The tires on the wheel chair motors are 13" tiller tires.
I would like to eventually convert my wheel chair motors to BLDC hoverboard wheels with aggressive
field tread. Are BLDC wheels with aggressive tread available?
Also would 2 Odrives be able to handle the wheels directly or do I need to consider gear
I have just acquired a new Odrive and am going to build a small house robot using two 6.5" hover
board wheels and two non driven caster wheels. The community has me spooked concerning ground
loops so I am ordering an Adafruit USB isolator. Will this work?
I maybe going overboard on this small unit but when I port my design to the field Donkey, hopefully it will be seamless!
Since I am new to the community is there already a project similar to mine?
