As is shown in the image above, the arc turn works when one motor on the robot spins faster than the other. In the example, motor is spinning faster than motor C. Another way to express this is we put more power into motor than into C. This allows the robot to make a smooth turn. If we want the robot to turn in the other direction, we simply have to put more power into C than into B.
