Skid-steered vehicles are often used as outdoor mobile robots due to their robust mechanical structure and high maneuverability. Sliding, along with rolling, is inherent to general curvilinear motion, which makes both kinematic and dynamic modeling difficult. For the purpose of motion planning, this paper develops and experimentally verifies dynamic models(More)

Vehicular speed control using standard cruise control is good only when the road profile is uniformly smooth throughout; such a controller is essentially reactive in the sense that it responds after the speed has changed primarily because of the changing road profile. When the road profile is corrugated and has bumps, it is necessary to predict this profile(More)
