This paper reports experimental and analytical results of a Hybrid Mechanism Mobile Robot (HMMR) designed for field and military applications. The HMMR presented in this paper constitutes the second generation of a mobile robot that combines locomotion with manipulation in a symmetric invertible platform. The experimental results highlight the ability of the robot to operate in an unstructured environment and overcome obstacles that are much taller than its folded structure. The analytical…
