I am working on a high speed autonomous robot (about 6-7 m/s), which does obstacle detection as well as senses traffic lights (I have used Raspberry Pi 3 and Arduino Uno).
For the steering mechanism, I wanted to implement an Ackerman's steering. I've read about the principle and have understood its basics. Now to actually make the design, I am currently using switchboards, sold here in India, they are surprisingly strong, lightweight, waterproof(they are switchboards) and cheap. Now I got 1 big axle and the small axle cut out already, along with the two L-shaped pieces that join the 2 axles together... I'm just now confused as to how to connect the wheels to the axle and how to make them rotate along side it. The site won't let me upload any pics right now, I'll try again ASAP.
I have the switchboard, an electric drill and will to do anything to make this happen ( ;P ). I don't have access to a 3D Printer.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
P.S- And if you have any suggestions of your own, which might be better for my robot, feel free to share them, I'm just looking for a good steering method for my robot.
