Abstract

This paper discusses a simulation of Omni-Directional Mobile Robots (ODMRs) in consideration of driving wheel slips. In mobile robot navigation, the use of ODMRs is expected in narrow and complicated indoor floors such as of-fices with human beings. The ODMR is requested to control safely without a obstacle collision in the navigation. The safety control of the ODMR needs to consider driving wheel slips, because special types of driving wheels used for many ODMRs easily slip. A Two Wheels Caster (TWCaster) is specially developed for the measurement of the ODMR driving wheel slip. A driving wheel slip model and tracking control of the ODMR are discussed in simulations. Simulation results show effectiveness of the proposed driving wheel slip model, compared with experiments.
