Abstract

This paper deals with the project of experimental mobile robot with the undercarriage which combines both legged and wheeled locomotion. The robot can drive on wheels on flat terrain and walk on irregular terrain, e.g. on stairs. The novel topology with seven servo drives and four independent wheel drives is described. The application of laser sintering technology is also discussed.
