Abstract

In this paper, we propose an omnidirectional mobile mechanism with surface contact. This mechanism is expected to perform on rough terrain and weak ground at disaster sites. In the discussion on the drive mechanism, we explain how a two axes orthogonal drive transmission system is important and we propose a principle drive mechanism for omnidirectional motion. In addition, we demonstrated that the proposed drive mechanism has potential for omnidirectional movement on rough ground by conducting experiments with prototypes.
