Using a Rotacaster Omni-wheel as a Steering Jockey-Wheel in a Differential Drive Robotics platform is an easy way of producing a Robot with precision steering. When the bot travels in a straight-line, one of the Rotacaster Omni-wheels rollers becomes the Jockey-wheel. To turn the platform you simply rotate the powered Rotacaster Omni-wheel. By play with the gearing of the drive to the Rotacaster, you can obtain great accuracy in controlling your Robot. This configuration is ideal for  “Line-Following” Robots.
