Abstract

This paper describes the joint mechanism to realize various configurations for a connected vehicle. By changing the configuration of two connected vehicle units in relative positions, the robot with this mechanism can automatically adapt to the configurations of obstacles in the field, including such complicated structures like debris after disasters. To assess the performance of this joint mechanism, an actual prototype model was developed and the basic performances of this vehicle were confirmed through mobile experiments.
