Robot kinematics, mobile robots, simulation.


This article is about designing and constructing a four-wheel chassis. Analyzed is a used concept of chassis motion control of mechatronic systems on the principle of differential wheel control for the task of active tracking of planned chassis path. Created was a simulation model of chassis mobile system in terms of kinematics, which will be usable in concept of chassis locomotion control on diverse terrain. A model is also required for examining behavior of chassis on diverse terrain, for examining the influence of dimensions on chassis behavior during crossing over roughness of terrain.
