Mecanum wheels

The Mecanum Wheel, is also called Ilon wheel. It is a conventional wheel with many rollers attached to its circumference, these rollers having an axis of rotation at 45° to the plate of the wheel in a plane parallel to the axis of rotation of the wheel. Mecanum wheel is capable of moving in any direction using a standard chassis shape. Mounting mecanum wheels in the traditional foreandafter orientation allows another inch or two of room between the front wheels which can be critical in designing a competition robot, especially in a game like Clean Sweep which has large game objects.

The advantages of mecanum wheels come from the fact that they are still in a standard wheel orientation and can function as normal wheels or mecanum wheels while the drive system you are referring to only has 1 option of configurability. Both have different applications and both have been used in FIRST. It mostly comes down to preference.
