position of an arc

Recommended Posts

Hello I am trying to calculate the position of a two wheeled mobile robot. the robot moves in an arc. The left wheel moves at 2m/s and the right wheel moves at 1.5m/s They do this for two seconds. The distance betweent the wheels is 0.5m The centre of the wheel axis is at (0,0) Hence 0.25 away from each wheel. How can I work out the new coord of the centre of the wheel axis after the above movement has finished. Cheers Richard

Homework? Why else would anyone specify particular numbers with such detail?

Anyway:
- Find the center of the curve that the robot describes (both wheels should have the same angular speed).
- Find the arc (in radians) completed after 2 seconds.
- Find the point you want (using cos() and sin()).

I have to agree with alvaro''s analysis, and I''m closing the thread. I know you have generally posted on-topic posts to various threads, but based on information on your home page and the nature of the question this seems to be obviously a homework/schoolwork question. And you don''t show your own work before asking.
