Symptoms may include communication problems such as using and understanding language; difficulty relating to people, objects, and events; unusual play with toys and other(More)
This paper presents the kinematical analysis of AZIMUT-2, a four steered wheeled mobile robot. The utilization of a new wheel concept called the AZIMUT wheel allowed us to create an innovative omnidirectional non-holonomic robot. Novelty of this wheel concept resides in the non-conventional positioning of the steering axis and the wheel axis. We propose a(More)
HE most common ground locomotion method to make a mobile robot move is to use two-wheel drive with differential steering and a rear balancing caster. Controlling the two motors independently makes the robot non-holonomic in its motion. Such robots can work well indoor on flat surfaces and in environments adapted for wheelchairs. But the benefit of providing(More)
