How to Calculate the Sloppiness of a Wheel on an EV3 Motor

This video will teach you the mathematical process for calculating the sloppiness, or “slop distance” of a given wheel when placed on an EV3 motor. Slop distance if an important metric to mind because it is different depending on your wheel choice. The higher your slop distance is, the less accurate your robot’s motion will be. This is even more imperative for FLL and WRO robots, who require complete precision of motion.
