3 Wheels Vs 4 Wheels

July 29, 2017

When making a robot, we ran into the question of: "Three wheels or four wheels". This question split our team temporarily into two groups, the three wheel group and the four wheel group. The arguments of the three wheel group were that using three wheels would be cheaper, more mobile and easier to maneuver. The 4 wheel team believed that 4 wheels was simpler, easier to build, and more stable. Our team decided to have a vote, but the result was a tie, so we decided that each side shall build one robot in one week and at the end we would judge which robot was better and revote. At the end of the week our groups presented the robots and restated the advantages. The two groups then realized that stability did not matter because the weight of the robot was so heavy that both robots were almost equally stable and the cost was about the same because the turntable resources brought the cost so close that the price did not matter anymore. After that, we voted and decided that the 4 wheel robot was better because it performed better on our test track.
