The NXT 2.0 programme has a selection of pre- written programmes on a menu where it says for a right turn the standard robot (the one suggested in the education packs) needs to turn 170 degrees, which gives me a quite accurate right turn for my robot. However, when I have done the measurements and the maths behind the right turn, where the robots wheels are moving in opposite directions and pivoting around the centre point between the wheels giving a circle diameter of 110mm and wheel circumference of 175.9mm, I worked out it would need 0.49 rotations/ 176.4 degrees. This gives me a a right turn which overshoots.
Any suggestions as to how they have arrived at 170 degrees? Is it just a case of error in the motors and a difference in rounding or something more substantial than this?
