Presents a tool for designing locomotion plans and controlling their execution, suited for mobile robots with an extensive set of command and perception primitives. The use of this tool is illustrated by its application to RAMI, a four-tiltable-track robot fitted to a large scope of applications requiring high locomotion agility. A discussion of plan(More)
