Abstract

In this paper, we describe a new type of holonomic and omnidirectional mobile robot using two driving assemblies, one of which consists of two independent driving wheel mechanisms, just like an active dual-wheel caster with an offset steered axis. Kinematic models of the wheel mechanism and a mobile robot with two driving assemblies are derived, and these models are applied to construct a feedback control system based on a resolved velocity control system for the robot. The effectiveness of the presented method is illustrated by some computer simulations. The prototype of a mobile robot platform using two driving assemblies, which can be controlled by a personal computer or a 3D joystick manipulated by human, is constructed.
