RoverC-Pro is a programmable Mecanum wheel omnidirectional mobile robot base. Compatible with M5StickC/M5StickC PLUS, it can be initialized by just inserting M5StickC/M5StickC PLUS. The main control chip is STM32F030C6T6, and it incorporates four N20 worm gear motors to drive the wheels directly by the motor driver.
The PRO version provides a gripping mechanism controlled by a servo for gripping objects. The base provides two dedicated servo control drivers. In addition, it also provides two Grove-compatible I2C connectors to facilitate the expansion of other modules. The base is compatible with Lego and can be expanded structurally. There is an 16340 (700mAh) battery on the back, from which the battery can be replaced. It can be recharged through M5StickC/M5StickC PLUS. The power of the base is controlled by an independent switch.

LEARN AND DOCUMENTS
This little toy machine is an excellent tool to learn how to drive such a vehicle. However I'm not sure what am I doing wrong, because if I write smaller values to the motors (~30), each motors starts to move at different point thus the vehicle starts to drift before starting to move forward.
Nice mecanum wheels robot base compatible with lego. Unfortunately, the 2 front gear motors on my unit have some mechanical issues and rotate at much lower speeds than the 2 other gear motors in the back. The motor drivers thresholds to get the 2 front wheels spinning are much higher than the ones for the back wheels. You need to run all motors always almost at full speed and it's difficult to control the intended trajectory of the robot with defective gear motors and no encoders.
I’ve never used mechanum wheels before and even after trying the examples I found guessing the values for the parameters to be less than ideal, there’s a lot of wheel spinning on most surfaces. Otherwise a great little robot, very well built, and the UIFlow software is intuitive to use.
