beautiful work, one question: How do you turn the wheel?

The back wheels are driven by independent dc motors. Turns are accomplished by spinning the wheels at different speeds. The remote control software I uploaded spins one wheel at 50% and the other at 100% in order to make the turns shown in the video.

This is an outstanding work. I dont know how noone said a thing yet.

Btw, what is the axe between the front wheels? Is it just a piece of plastic filament?

Not sure what you're referring to? The webcam snakes out from the USB on the single board computer and it rests on the sonar mount between the two front wheels.

The front wheels have independent axels which are "axel.stl" on the original truckbot design: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10349http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

They are rectangular but spin because the parts that snap on either end are round.
