Swerve Drive Danny Robocup 2023
7 July 2023

Guess what? The MSL team at Tech United has some exciting news to share! They're currently working on a fresh innovation for their robotic team, and it's none other than a brand-new member. What makes this newcomer special are its wheels. These robots feature the cutting-edge "Swerve Drive" with larger wheels capable of rotating the full 180 degrees. This impressive feature provides the soccer robots with extra flexibility, acceleration and speed on the field. But that's not all!

According to Danny, a dedicated member of the MSL team for a few years now, the new and sturdy wheels also offer enhanced stability and extra grip, especially when the robots are tackling rough terrain. It's a win-win situation, really. While the team still needs to conduct detailed testing and make program adjustments, we are very eager to give the Swerve Drive a chance. Danny is optimistic about introducing the Swerve Drive technology at the upcoming Robocup 2023 event in Bordeaux. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development from Tech United's MSL team!
