[Webots 7.4.3] Frictionless wheel (Floating wheel)by sunny277@kaist.ac.kr Kim (14) 2017-04-19 12:13:48
Hello. I'm using Webots 7.4.3.

I have a question.
I want to model a frictionless wheel which is attached to a robot.
I made a motor node which is inherited by a robot node. But failed to make it rotate freely.
How can I realize it?

Hi,

please note that Webots 7.4.3 is no longer supported.
I would suggest you to upgrade to the latest version of Webots 8.

If your wheel touches some other objects like a floor, then you have to remove the contact friction using the ContactProperties node.
Otherwise you have to check that your JointParameters node doesn't specify any friction, damping, etc. and that the Motor node 'maxTorque' and 'maxVelocity' are big enough for your purposes.

Best regards,
Stefania

Oh, thank you so much.
It was a problem of setting axis. It works now large smile

I will upgrade to the latest version of Webots 8, soon.
I look forward to your continued support.
Thanks.
