I have a 'Baron' robot frame with 4 static wheels, all driven by a motor. At the moment I'm thinking of handling it like a 2 wheel differential drive. Left and right wheels would receive the same signal. Actually you can interpret it as a tank on caterpillars, exept there is no link between the two tires. Does anyone have a different idea about this?
Ps: The purpose of the robot will be to know it's exact location. I will use a kalman filter (EKF) to do sensor fusion of the odometry and an IMU with accelero, gyro and magnetometer. So in the kalman filter I add the odometry model of a differential drive robot.
